"Once upon a time there was a house in the middle of the sea where a woman waited while she played a melancholy violoncello… She was waiting for her beloved, a painter who had always wanted to be a sailor so that he could navigate amongst the jellyfish, the sea stars and the thousand coloured fishes that he dreamt of in his paintings… His fascination led him to undertake a trip with the purpose of discovering the exciting beauty and mysteries of the deep sea, but one that meant that neither of them knew if they would ever meet again… A trip to the depths of the sea. A dream come true. A love story. A poem in motion..." - Instituto Cervantes de Manila
July 21, 2012 (Saturday) - "Don Quijote I y II" (26 minutes)
"Cartoon adaptation of the immortal work of Miguel de Cervantes. 39 episodes chronicling the adventures of the knight Don Quixote (voice of Fernando Fernan-Gomez) and his faithful squire Sancho Panza (voice of Antonio Ferrandis)." - Instituto Cervantes de Manila
July 28, 2012 (Saturday) - "Nocturna" (80 minutes)
"In the aging orphanage the days pass very uneventfully, but the nights are something quite different; at least for Tim they are. The light reflected from the stars is the only cure for his fear of the dark. One night this fear leads him to the orphanage rooftop. Where he discovers that his favourite star has disappeared, and unfortunately it’s not going to be the last one. Tim also discovers the Cat Shepherd and his faithful cat Tobermory, that will become Tim's personal guardians. Tim convinces the Shepherd to take him to see Moka, the guardian of the night, and pleads for him to return the stars to the night sky." - Instituto Cervantes de Manila
