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).

Great short film if you have the right attitude.
11 April 2005 | by (United Kingdom, London, England) – See all my reviews

Anyone watching this short film expecting to see a film with the production qualities of a Hollywood movie will be sadly disappointed. Yet should you watch this film and consider it was made with a budget of $200 you will be truly amazed. What Andrés Useche has achieved with this piece of work is proof that a strong, well written story, great artist skill and imagination can produce work that embraces the likes of Hollywood considering the difference in production costs. So if you are looking to watch this short film (and you can find it - It's rarer than honest politician) please consider the production costs. I was especially impressed with Andrés's use of camera effects, lighting and the use of his artwork mixed with the film which provided some great imagery. I really, really, really hope someone over in Hollywood land gives Andrés a proper budget and lets him get on with producing great work.
