Cortometraje “El Punto Rojo” – 2012
A cut directed by Darío J.Ferrer and Carlos Sánchez Arévalo about the origins of La Tomatina Festival with a great sense of surreal humor. Pepe, who was obsessed by tomatoes since he was born, fell in love with Encarna (the grocer’s daughter). Unfortunately, he has a strong opponent, Alfonsito. The ending of this love triangle has the backdrop of La Tomatina Festival origins in 1945.
Outstanding artists such as Alejo Sauras, Javivi, Carabias, Albert Pla, Mariam Hernandez, Lola Molto, Joan Gadea, Jose Montó, among others, participated in this work…as well as the citizens of Buñol.
