ABSOLUTION

CONCEPT

Absolution is an action-filled short film inspired by women in the fashion industry. More often than not, women in this industry are overlooked so it was important to portray the main protagonists as strong and independent.

Whether they are villains or heroes (that’s up to the viewer to decide), these women take high fashion back to the streets and reclaim what is rightfully theirs.

Warriors for Social Justice

CONCEPT

Who get to be the moral arbiters of right and wrong? In this digital age, should we treat more carefully before we attempt to play God? When the preservation of feelings reigns supreme, what happens to freedom of speech? In this serio-comedic short film, we get a glimpse into the repercussions of the “shoot first, ask questions never” mentality that has become ever present in today’s society.

This short also serves as the proof of concept for an 8-episode series currently being developed by Filmstorms and its associates.

PKU

CONCEPT

The short film shows the life of Candela, a unique survivor in a post-apocalyptic future. A woman who, in addition to facing the difficulties of subsisting in an almost sterile environment, where insects are the only source of natural protein, suffers from a rare disease: PKU. Unfortunately, or fortunately, the Biosensor is what guarantees your survival.

Phenylketonuria, also called PKU, is a rare, hereditary and uncured disease caused by an enzyme deficiency. When a person with PKU consumes too much protein or artificial sweetener, it can result in serious health problems such as irreversible brain damage. The objective of this short film is to raise funds to develop the Biosensor needed to monitor the amount of protein in the blood and regulate the level of protein intake.

We need to raise funds to develop the Home Phe Monitor, if you want to donate go to the link: https://fundacionpkuotm.org/colabora/
