Hilda´s short summer

Written & directed by Agustín Banchero


Hilda is a lonely woman who lives in the town of Concepción. She intentionally breaks off any kind of affective relationship with the people around her. Her life is interrupted by the announcement that her son is coming to visit her after several years. So she begins preparations to improve her house and her image, which has declined in recent times. On the date, her son cancels the visit and postpones it indefinitely. Now Hilda will have to live a summer in the past.
