    C. is a talented sound designer, passionate about her work. After delivering a few sound mixes with clear defects of synchronization, her employers believe that she is going through a phase of psychological instability, and that they cannot trust her with new projects. She will then realize that, just like a film with a faulty soundtrack, her brain is processing sound later than images. As the time lapse extends, day after day, she will face hardships, be forced to give up her job and reconsider her whole life.

    There are days that I feel out of sync and anguished, and the only thing that connects me with the world is that small but stubborn idea for a possible new film. Something that will end up being a movie eventually, but that I have not shared with anyone yet.

    Juanjo Giménez was born in Barcelona. His last short film, TIMECODE (2016) won the Palm d’Or at Cannes, the 2017 European Film Award for Best Short Film, and the Goya in the same category, as well as being nominated for the Academy Award for Best Short Film. In all, it has won more than 100 awards at film festivals the world over. Giménez has also directed the feature film NOS HACEMOS FALTA (TILT 2003), which premiered at the IFF Rotterdam; and two documentaries, CONTACT PROOF (2014) and ESQUIVAR I PEGAR (2010), as well as several other awarded short films.
