La Migala


I am petrified of snakes – can’t stand them. Fear and especially phobias are used time again to drive narratives and excite audiences. But, in La Migala fear is used differently – not as a tool for reaction but as a metaphor for a broken heart. Spanish director, Jamie Dezcallar does a great job pulling us into the inner workings of a man who has nothing left to live for. Shout out to Ivan Kander who curated the video for Short of the Week!
