The Spanish Experimentals of Eve A. Ma

Three experimental shorts by filmmaker Eve A. Ma, shot in southern Spain in and near the city of Jerez de la Frontera. They range in length from 26 minutes (Two Streets and Adela) to 18 minutes (Tone Poem with Hang Drum) to the very short short, Her (Ella), clocking in at 4 minutes. The shorts are full of local color and beautiful music.

And FYI: "Her" was made long before the somewhat better-known Hollywood feature!

All of these films were shot in Spanish and have English subtitles, but don't let the subtitles put you off: Her has absolutely no dialogue, and the other two have very little. These films are mostly an exercise in visual - interesting and beautiful visuals. Enjoy!
