The documentary short by Xacio Baño, To Be and To Come Back, won two major awards at the recent Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival.
This is the second time that the world’s most important short film festival has selected the Galician filmmaker. Baño participated in 2012 with his short Anacos. In fact, this work is included in a special pack of short films screened at Clermont that you’ll find in our section of Feel Specials.
His new documentary short, To Be and To Come Back, was part of the line up of the most experimental selection in Clermont: the Labo section, where it has garnered the Canal + Award and the Jury Special Mention.
In the short, filmmaker remains faithful to his style, one geared toward playing with visual language and finding its own narrative, in order to talk about a young filmmaker who spends a weekend at his grandparents’ home to make a video-portrait of them.
