MARIETA | 2017
A short puppet film set in Spain during the civil war in the 1930s.
A young girl is sent by her mother to buy some kidney meat for a special dinner where war officers are invited, but she wastes time playing in the woods and the butcher is closed when she gets there. On her way back home through the forest the girl spots a soldier's corpse mauled by a wild animal and revealing a fresh kidney. Thinking only of how her mother said that the meal was very important for her father, she takes the kidney and runs home. Later that night, the dead soldier appears at her house, looking for his kidney and revenge.
