Abstract

In 1994, Carlos Carrera directed his best-known short, El héroe (‘The Hero’), winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes. It’s the blackly comic story of a man who sees a young lady walking close to the edge of the platform in the Underground. He tries to save her, but she yells and accuses him of harassment; the poor hero is led away by police. Seconds later, the woman throws herself under the train. Laboriously produced by Mario Noviello’s Visiographics, the dark-toned visuals are reminiscent of oil paintings.
