Alma, a short film by Colombian director Santiago León Cuéllar, is a story full of humanity that stands out for its ability to make us put ourselves in the shoes of its protagonist, in that exercise of empathy that good cinema always achieves. With an intelligent and delicate approach, it is a story of initiation that addresses the conflicts that arise for a young woman who has to go through an arduous personal process to identify with the image that the mirror returns to her.

Free Movie in Spanish with English subtitles available to watch online during 48h from 28 July at 10am (AEST). Booking is required in order to receive a reminder with instructions to access the movie.

During the month of July, the Vimeo channel of the Instituto Cervantes, in collaboration with the film distributor Marvin & Wayne, will host eight different stories by eight filmmakers with a very personal look and work in the cycle. Te estoy amando locamente. LGTBQI+ short film series, which takes its name from the song popularized by Las Grecas in the 70s. The short films that make up this cycle present us with personal stories, reflections, testimonies and portraits that direct our gaze towards realities that are underrepresented in cinema -and, it could be said, in all artistic manifestations-: they are stories that deal, especially but not only, with gender identity, homosexual love and transsexuality.

At the formal level, the variety of cinematographic proposals is quite remarkable: the spectator will find languages ranging from experimental, to documentary as an archeological exercise, through the portrayal of tender and endearing characters who do not ignore the harshness of their realities. Like that song, Te estoy amando locamente (I'm loving you madly), which perhaps expressed a desire that some - like many who preceded and followed them - could never express except from silence, the short films in this cycle break that silence with vibrant, fresh proposals of full artistic and human relevance.
