IMPORTANT THINGS DON’T MATTER
Nominated for Best Short Documentary
Directed by Gabriel Tizón
26' • Spain • 2021
Documentary made for more than five years in numerous countries in Africa and Europe, to photograph and film through the encounter with people and places that suffer from the greed of the human being. An intimate trip, a walk through this ephemeral life where the author pretends to be another neighbor, regardless of where he is, with phrases that were written during the coexistence, to unite words and images in a single feeling, without prejudice, avoiding the word injustice to suggest questions we can ask ourselves. An invitation to the viewer to put his own voice on this long journey full of life, to discover the relationship between North and South. The documentary shares a book published months before that could be considered as its own script and, on its first page it says: a book with more questions than answers.
