Generally the posts of this blog are thought out and its subject is chosen carefully among hundreds of things that swarm the writer's mind . Such was the shock that caused me this short film I have just seen that I have not thought twice to include it in order to expand its distribution and reach as many people as possible.
I just found it losing my time on Facebook and it must be reflected that without Fran Ortiz's post (Paskhone) I would not have known it. In this short film there is modern society in which the work seems scarce so arise some curious jobs. Its approach is not encouraging at all and rather put me goosebumps. It is perhaps the saddest thing I've seen in recent years. Masses of young Spaniards emigrating to jobs for which they are overqualified. Politicians laughing with impunity with pockets full of envelopes. Suicides and murders due to choking mortgage. Grandchildren living by pension of their parents' parents. Against this situation I do not see so far away the time to work as nightstand for some Andalusian gentleman with sideburns (best wash British soil, pound is stronger). I know nothing about responsibility, only victims.
