The Phone Box: allegory about the consequences of dehumanisation

"In a bland square in Madrid, some workers, who are wearing a strange uniform, are installing a phone box. Some moments later, an anonymous citizen, after taking his son to the school bus, gets trapped in the box for no understandable reason. As the day goes by, all kind of strangers go there to see the strange event: some of them try to free him; others make fun of him… Everyone looks interested in this little man. After a distressing delay full of surrealistic moments, the trapped man is taken to a strange factory full of thousands of phone boxes. In each one, a single corpse is trapped, in some strange ritual. The movie ends with a new phone box in another square of the city."

(Aaron Rodriguez, World Cinema Directory)

Eau De La Vie: a nouveau debutante's moral dilemma

"Set somewhere in the near future, this black tale tells of nouveau debutante Catherine, who is being initiated into her friends' sordid cafe society world. She must choose from a small group of pre–purchased performers who will entertain the diners for the evening – but the 'entertainment' leaves Catherine fighting to the death for what she believes is right."
