The Open Reel deals with director Benjamin Bodi and collective LES ESTUPENDES (Sylvia Torras, Teresa Beltran, Gemma Prats, Marta Vidal, David Bauzó) for the acquistion of the short film Pig for Pigs.
PIGS FOR PIGS. The sister of the man of the house, the wife of this man, the sister of this wife and a maid, who is the best friend of the sister’s wife, have long lived together under the same roof, the roof of the man of the house. After so many years they have created a micro world of rivalries and secret envies. When the man leaves the house, the spell is broken and the craziest follies take over these women. Unexpectedly today, they should find kind of agreement.
