Fortnight 2007, Short film, 0h16


Ernesto is a well-to-do family man who is going through an odd existential crisis. He decides to build a huge bonfire to celebrate his birthday with his family. Hoguera is a brief meditation on the fragility of man and the inescapable pathos that inhabits every family nucleus.
