Lonely, middle-aged virgin Antonio Farfán is picked on and ridiculed by both his coworkers and his bullying mooch of a brother (he only calls when he needs money). An employee of a notary's office, Antonio improves his standing bit when his new boss—who happens to be his strangely affable doppelgänger—shows some interest in him. But Antonio's deep-seated shyness and insecurity are only partly assuaged. And when he joins an unorthodox self-improvement group, he slowly confirms what the undulating lines of this sly, animated dramedy suggest—that everything is in motion, and change is inevitable. The question becomes what use one makes of it. Created with an inventive rotoscoping technique by Columbian filmmaker Carlos Osuna, FAT, BALD, SHORT MAN (GORDO, CALVO Y BAJITO) is presented in Spanish with English subtitles. This film is an official selection of the prestigious, award-winning Global Lens Collection, presented by the Global Film Initiative.
