Synopsis:
The filmmaker's mother recalls her own mother and childhood in the 1960s bouncing between Mexico and California.

A GENERAL DISAPPOINTMENT 

NARRATIVE SHORT

Directed by: Serge Garcia
Cinematography: Simon Köcher
Length: 25:00 min
Format: 16mm, 35mm
Year: 2022

Synopsis:
A General Disappointment bends the quotidian with ordinary scenes that are overlaid with stories told through text that wander through a night at a sex club, domestic duties at home, and the existential aftermath after a failed attempt to go on a date. The experience invites us to ponder over the systemic failures inherent to capitalist societies, and how vain their promises of happiness and self-fulfillment are.
