Sueños is a Spanish short film released directed by Daniel Guzmán. It was filmed in Madrid and released in 2003 and a year later won the Goya award for the best short film.
The story is about two friends who spent a hot summer day on a rooftop in the neighborhood of Aluche – sunbathing, listening to music, and talking about their desires and dreams. They know little of life and make plans, each in its own way, without knowing what awaits them across the corner. The young protagonists in the film (Adrián Gordilloy and Adam Jeziersky ) deliver a very good and credible performance. A bit of leisure in early childhood becomes an important dialogue that makes strong trends in life.
As with most successful films, the personality of the director is reflected in his creation which makes it so appealing to the audience. When asked to describe what inspired him to direct Sueños, Daniels Guzmán said :
“Dreams is the story of my adolescence, my past. I have my concerns, my desires, my fears and my dreams that I had at that stage of my life by mixing it with a bet, and a game as a backdrop. I wanted to share my concerns and experiences of that time.” (source)
