Writer/director Pedro Almodóvar's first English language film stars Tilda Swinton in a free adaptation of Jean Cocteau’s play. 

A woman watches time passing next to the suitcases of her ex-lover (who is supposed to come pick them up, but never arrives) and a restless dog who doesn’t understand that his master has abandoned him. Filled with references to Almodóvar's previous works and influences, the sumptuous short signals new possibilities for the Spanish film-maker.

The screening will be followed by a pre-recorded Q&A with the director.
