When last we spoke
of Ivan Villamel's short film Mr. Dentonn
we were marvelling that it was very likely the most programmed and awarded short film of all time. After over five hundred festival stops it is finally time to reach out to the last... what... half dozen of us left in the World who were not at a festival when this played. .
On a cold winter night, Laura reads his brother David the story of a strange creature that attacks children. Suddenly, a shiver runs Laura's body, feeling a strange presence in the house.
"Mr.Dentonn", directed by Ivan Villamel, produced by Harmonica Films & Mordisco Films, and played by Irene Aguilar, Kaiet Rodriguez and Ander Pardo, has broken records in its genre, becoming the most awarded and selected horror short film of all time worldwide, with 500 official selections and more than 120 international awards, in addition to more than 1200 award nominations and 1500 screenings around the world.
"Mr.Dentonn" is a tribute to the fantastic cinema of the 80's, a game of references that wants to transport a whole generation to the same sensations they had when they were children. The short film is influenced by the first films of John Carpenter, filmmaker who admire its creators, and the films of the Amblin factory. Uses the classic figure of the boogeyman to show to the audience a very original version of the myth, making him a thief of souls. A small 10-minute film, for all ages, evocative and imaginative. Its creators are already working to find funding for the feature film project of "Dentonn", where it could fully develop the mythology of the character.
Screen Anarchy is pleased to celebrate this amazing run and share Mr. Dentonn's online premiere. Watch it below!
