Filming small change. The documentaries of Óscar Pérez


With great confidence and sensibility in the face of his subjects, Óscar Pérez captures the unusual side of the small everyday events of life in a discreet approach without recourse to dramatic effects. In his first full-length feature, he continues with another two chapters of the story that began with El sastre, winner of the IDFA Silver Cup: the power relations, in an 8 m2 tailor’s shop in the Raval, between the Pakistani owner and his Indian assistant. We then see the employee’s strange relation with a Russian woman (with no common language) and the disputes of Mohamed the tailor with his new assistant, his brother Alyas. Ventrada is the portrait of a paralytic shepherd.

Presentation and debate with the filmmaker after the screening.
