Aurora and the House of Lights

(Aurora y la casa de las luces)
Ángela Matiz, María Matiz | Drama

2022 | 17 minutes | Colombia

Aurora desperately plays in an arcade to win a giant teddy bear, escaping a painful reality in a hospital after a traumatic event.


Aurora is 25 years old and is frantically playing in an arcade to collect the 3,200 tickets for a giant teddy bear.

She can't stop because it would bring her back to reality, to what happened the day before and why she was in the hospital. If the bear wins, everything will be okay, the wound on her arm will heal and she will be safe. But denial is only the first stage. This delicate short story is about the stages of grief, full of colors, lights, and Aurora.


Coming soon.
