Women on a Roll is a short documentary that travels through the past, the present and the future of the roller skating culture in the city of Amsterdam through the eyes of women skating at iconic places in the community. In a cinematic style, we explore the feeling that women experience while practising this urban sport and how the public spaces have been redefined to accommodate this reviving trend.

In December 2020 Pascual Marín Marina (Photographer) and Carlos Álvarez Zamorano from León make a route through the forests of Boñar (Spain), there in the mountain they are surprised by the presence of a bus with a chimney from which smoke comes out and with the legend "Geocruiser".
Pascual publishes several photos on social networks and Fay Victoria Durrant (current owner of the bus contacts him); After an investigation they discover that the bus was commissioned by the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge (The Institute Official Culture) to the well-known English artist Nils Norman and financed by the British Art Council.
We located him in Amsterdam (Netherlands) and interviewed him; we also spoke with Fay Victoria on her farm in Boñar with her partner, the also Englishman Jon Leth, who currently reside on the bus and where Fay Victoria raised her daughters (who are now adults and live in England) with an unconventional concept of life and close to nature; We find the story very interesting and decided to make a documentary.
Two interviews with Nils and several trips to Boñar bring us closer to this incredible story of a bus that in 2001 was a work of art (public sculpture) in Cambridge (England) and that travels throughout Europe with ecological messages; and a few years later it becomes the home of a family in the forests of Boñar, in León, (Spain). The story of the journey of a bus in search of a dream.

The short documentary portrays the life of cowboys in the Amazon, presenting different perspectives from people involved in cattle ranching. The film highlights the dream of many cowhands to ride a bull in São Paulo and perhaps one day in the United States, as well as the importance of having a conscious look at the environment and animal welfare. The production brings unfiltered images of the cowboy's work routine in the Amazon region.

Decades after that first romance. After that mistake that cost him everything, the anthropologist will receive a letter in his mailbox. An invitation to a funeral. With it, burning memories will resurface, memories of an idyllic past, of a far away country, of her… now he must choose. Leave his current life, return to the land in the mist and heal old wounds… or stay in the life he forcefully chose, and live with the doubt of what could have been.

At the end of August 2017, the neighbourhood of Canido, in Ferrol (Galicia-Spain) made a worldwide call in the media, leaded by Edu Hermida, for the most famous urban artist, Banksy, to participate in the event of the year in the small town: The Canido’s Meninas Festival.
This film recounts, through the words of the festival’s promoter, the enigmatic events which took part in Canido during the four years following the event. As Hermida himself says: “it’s is a mystery-comedy film at the same time, because it is superberlanguiano. How the hell is Banksy going to come to Canido to paint a mural?"
