Spain & Korea at EuroAsia Shorts 2022

Spain and Korea present their short films together at “EuroAsia Shorts 2022” on June 14, participating also in the closing night on June 17 together with other European, U.S., and Asian films.

Every program includes a series of shorts followed by cultural Q&A and discussion, and some nights include special content or events. The 2022 edition is a mixed format, with some programs streaming online and some in-person at unique embassy venues.

The theme for EuroAsia Shorts 2022 is The Art of Life. Life, like progress, does not proceed in a straight line. The never-ending challenge of balancing, enjoying, and dealing with life is an art form, both universal and futile in our attempts to master it. There is no perfect path, partner, or recipe, and yet we seek and celebrate them in life just the same, against all odds and no matter the hardship. This year’s EuroAsia Shorts is about the inseparability of the good, the bad, and the ugly in life, and how every life lived well can be its own masterpiece.
