The screening for this film has ended.
It's hot in a ramshackle attic. Full-blown fans stir the atmosphere generated by the exercises of a weird tenant who manipulates objects. He twists cardboard, builds object castles, admires them, talks to them, breaks them, dresses and dances with them.
The ceremonies are repeated and mutated, the environments change, and the objects multiply, creating a kind of dissonant choreography built with remnants of amateur video. The plot gets more complicated when between those objects his memories appear and force him to fight in a duel of dances with his past.

What I have been looking for with Mudanza Contemporánea is to take advantage of the personal planet that arose from a break up and use its particular language to tell the emotional drift of the character. To portray how in that moment of emptiness, creativity became a necessity, and the environment of the character became a blank canvas on which to create spontaneously, and build a parallel reality from which to try to outwit the evil spirits.
Teo Guillem is a director who has been working for more than ten years in film, handling commercials, music videos and opening titles for feature films, among other things. In 2007 he established Dvein, a production company and directors collective with a background in fine art and design, well-known for their style that merges the physical and digital worlds to craft a distinctive aesthetic with an experimental, design-driven culture at its core.
Guillem’s directorial work with Dvein has been widely successful in both commercials and films; featured in multiple festivals and exhibitions around the world, such as Saatchi & Saatchi’s New Director Showcase (France), OFFF Festival (France & Spain), F5 (United States), and ArtFutura (Argentina). His short film Magma (2013), was awarded at the AICP Awards and the Australian Animation Festival, among others, and is part of the permanent collection of the MoMa in New York.
