Gordo, calvo y bajito
Fat, Bald, Short Man

Carlos Osuna

Colombia, Black Comedy/Drama/Animation, 2011
90 min, HD, Color
Spanish with English subtitles


Antonio Farfán is a middle-aged man who works in a notary's office. He has always believed he is a failure because he is bald, short and fat. Though his mind is never silent, his life goes along almost uneventfully until the new notary arrives: a fatter, balder and shorter man who, unlike Antonio, is successful and loved by others. Dazed and confused, Antonio is now thrown out to the real world where he faces his own fears and ends up living pretty unexpected situations. With an animation style all its own, playing smartly with depth of field, Gordo, calvo y bajito is an impressive cinematic debut, screening internationally and recently receiving a Special Mention at the Warsaw Film Festival.
