Roberto Fiesco‘s new short film Tremulo, presented in world premiere at 30 Guadalajara International Film Festival, where competes for the Best Iberoamerican Short Film section, has been sold yesterday to German distributor Pro-Fun Media, who has acquired all right for German and German speaking territories.
In Tremulo, Carlos sweeps and mops the floor of an old-time barbershop. The day before Independence Day, among the customers is Julio. Their eyes meet, and when the barbershop closes Julio comes back for Carlos. They spend the night together, eating, chatting and even dancing, knowing full well that this encounter will be brief and short-lived.
