The Bus

Spain2022documentary30'International Short Competition

The bus is already crowded on the first stop. Have you ever thought who the people riding with you on the bus are? Sandra Reina decided to check it. The Spanish director took a camera on her suburban journey and started to shoot people around her. A man was reading a book, another one was looking at his mobile, some people interacted and told each other anecdotes or shared their life stories. Loud conversations were sometimes disturbing for other passengers. This closed area provided space for a temporary and very diverse micro community which ceased to exist the moment they arrived at the final stop.
