Trivia

Useche explained to a Colombian newspaper that the title Vana Espuma comes from an expression used in the 1619 play Fuenteovejuna that he found echoed in the Spanish translation of Freud's book On Dreams. In the introduction, Freud talks about other scientists who discouraged his work on this subject saying that dreams are "Schaum" (froth) a word which translated into Spanish as vana espuma (Idle Mist).

Triumph of the will
9 February 2002 | by (Washington DC) – See all my reviews

Film making south of the border in a feat for titans. You make movies for four thousand dollars, that is, 4 minutes of the production of "Jurassic Park". So, what Andres Useche has done is truly remarkable: a great indie, a wonderful short, and no budget. The storytelling is magnificent, the acting is shining, the soundtrack (yes, an original one) is full of creativity and talent.

This is the proof of what can be achieved by a creative mind truly obsessed with the medium
