UK Premiere/ Distancias cortas

Directed by Alejandro Guzmán Álvarez

This funny and poignant debut is a wonderful urban fairy-tale of love, friendship and the pursuit of a dream. Morbidly obese, Fede struggles to move about, let alone leave his Mexico City home. He keeps to a routine marked by jewellery making and Sunday visits from his domineering sister Rosaura and sympathetic brother-in-law Ramón. When he finds an old undeveloped camera film he is inspired to venture out to a photography studio, where he meets spiky-haired punk rock and comic book enthusiast Paulo. Fede, Ramón and Paulo form an unlikely friendship that changes their lives forever.
