Those little things

2014 | Fiction- short film | 27min | HD | Color


Those little things, is the story of the complex and dependent relationship between a mother and her daughter who struggle living together and who have never been capable of expressing their feelings towards each other.

Anita (40 years old) has dwarfism, and Maria (70 years old), a beautiful, elegant and sophisticated woman, has never fully accepted her daughter’s condition. The longtime silenced taboos between them will resonate more than ever while they get the house ready for Juan’s visit, the older brother.

At Inicia Films we understand that production is a way to influence society and connect emotionally with the audience. Since 2006 we have been working to promote new generations of filmmakers and thus give them a voice in today’s audiovisual world.

Through the eyes of our creators, the sensitivity of our authors, we accompany the development of international projects and multicultural talent, building bridges between their experiences abroad and their roots.
