Nights In Short: ‘Kitbull’ By Rosana Sullivan

Nights in short It is a section of that seeks to present you with proposals for short films by new talents and not-so-recognized directors.

Surely more than once you have heard someone say that humans “have a lot to learn from animals”, because on several occasions we have witnessed how they are the ones who teach us lessons in values ​​such as love, friendship and loyalty, which sometimes people seem to lose more and more.

Just one of those tests is “Kitbull”, an animated short film directed by Rosana Sullivan and which belongs to SparkShorts, an initiative of Disney Pixar that gives life to independent projects. On this occasion, ‘Kitbull’ lets us see the beautiful friendship that exists between a kitten and a pitbull dog, who have suffered abuse and neglect.

Due to its past – the kitten was abandoned and the puppy is used for street fights – at the beginning of the short film we see how both animals have some difficulties to be able to relate. However, at some point they both realize the things in common (both good and bad) that lead them to be friends and protect themselves.

Although the story itself is very sad, it is also full of hope since their friendship saves them and in the end leads them to have a happy ending, where They learn that bad things don’t last forever and that something better always comes in life. We leave them below to shed a tear like us:

As we mentioned at the beginning, Nights in short is a space on where every night we will present you a short film that you will surely like. However, that is not the main idea, because also We seek to publicize the work of those filmmakers who for one reason or another are not widely known: Pa ‘soon and so as not to throw them so much fluff, we want them to show us their shorts.

All you have to do is send us your short film to [email protected] so that we can check it and make it a court in this section. In the same way, we ask you to tell us a little about yourself in the body of the email and to tell the story behind the short that you are going to share with us. And if you have other works that you’ve filmed, don’t forget to mention them either; this is just a plus, don’t think it’s a necessary rule.

Preferably and to be able to show it to all our readers, We ask that your short film be available on a video platform, such as Vimeo or YouTube. But beware, if you want us to premiere it exclusively in Short Nights, we can also talk about it.
