El Orden de Las Cosas (The Order of Things)

by kangcuzzi

I was watching some short Spanish films online when I came across this film by the Alenda brothers (César Esteban Alenda and José Esteban Alenda), entitled El Orden de Las Cosas (The Order of Things). I was initially drawn by the entrancingly minimalistic feel of the video thumbnail, but when I sat down to watch the actual short, I realized that there is so much behind that one image that I cannot put it all into words. All I can say is that the film so lucidly and powerfully depicts domestic violence as an institutionalized problem that we need to talk about… especially because it happens so often, yet we are left unaware.

Tonight, do yourself some justice and absorb this story.
