How and why Don Jose Dissipated

Como Y Porque Se Ha Esfumado Don Jose

Spain/Israel, 2018, 13 min, Colour

A delighted bee disturbs the tranquility of vacationers on a quiet pastoral island. Disturbing Don Jose in the middle of a relaxing gaze, he spits at her and she falls into his drink. Attempting to save her from drowning, Don Jose becomes emotionally attached to the bee. When the bee is suddenly devoured by a duck, Don Jose starts his pursuit of the duck, embarking on a chase of logic and a surrealistic journey into the depths of his consciousness.
