Ciudad de mi corazón

A personal glimpse into Madrid, an experimental urban cityscape, an ode to life through a dance. "Ciudad de mi corazón" is an attempt to do a short experimental documentary in the form of what could be considered as "street cinematography". This multi-award winning short was conceived, written and filmed all in one week in Madrid.

Film original language is in Spanish but you can choose to have subtitles in English, Italian, Portuguese, Greek or Ukrainian.

- “‘City of my heart’ comes with our highest recommendations for its extraordinary capacity of visual lyricizing and the director’s proficient skill to turn emotions to screen”
The Monthly Film Festival

- “Everything regarding the visual spectrum was great, and we admit it: this may be one of the best experimental shorts we’ve had in the past couple of months”
Feel The Reel International Film Festival

- “The way the director managed to give random citizens enough space to show a side of their life in the city without ending up with a one-hour short shows pure skill, not only as a filmmaker, but as a storyteller as well”
Largo Film Awards

- “The short, though extremely minimalist, and experimental in form, is a well rounded narrative of poetry surrounding Madrid”
The Monkey Bread Tree Film Awards

- “This short film is very well achieved because it combines content and form very well, where nothing is left over or hindering, forming an indissoluble whole”
Five Continents International Film Festival
