Looking for festival release and sales agent



Distressed by the heartaches and trials of life and death, ghosts and humans in a small village in rural Spain do whatever they can to resolve their problems and have no qualms about relying on each
other to do so.


STILL LIFE WITH GHOSTS tells the stories of ghosts and humans from a small town in La Mancha who, anguished by the troubles
and difficulties of life and death, do everything possible to put an
end to their problems and do not hesitate to go to extremes and desperate plans to achieve it.

Eduardo returns to Earth seeking help to complete the transformation he has desired for decades. Paqui tries to prevent her hostile and dying husband’s plans from taking effect. Emilia and Carlota turn to the local priest to try to reclaim what, until then, had been their home.

Flor tries to end her tormented loneliness by following the guidelines dictated by a program of paranormal content. Fausti and Sebastian hope to put an end to their dire economy by drawing on ghostly folklore.

Director’s Profile

Enrique Buleo is born in 1979 in Villanueva de la Jara, a small town in Spain.

Here he spends his childhood and adolescence trying to become an athlete and a techno lover until he comes of age. In 2001 he graduates in Fine Arts and in 2004 he begins working as a teacher of Arts and Crafts in highschools, a job that he combines with the production of silkscreen printings, his first audiovisual pieces and musical creation. He is part of various music bands such as Turbio and Totem! to end up creating solo music under the pseudonym Terrikola. After several musical demos and several solo exhibitions of graphic work with zero impact, he decides to dedicate himself entirely to film creation. Between 2012 and 2014 he studies a master’s degree in film script at the University of La Laguna (Canary Islands) and in 2016 he makes Decorosa, a project with which he is selected in more than 60 international festivals . In 2018 he makes El Infierno y tal (Hell and such, produced by Sandra Mora of Quatre Films), a short film that is selected at festivals such as FICX, Palm Springs, Slamdance, Clermont-Ferrand or Guanajuato and in which he deals with some of his favorite topics: the hostility inherent in the human being, the unfounded hope or the unintentional comedy. With El Infierno y tal he wins a Special Mention at Clermont-Ferrand, the ARTE TV award at the Dresden festival and Third Prize in the Spanish Version / SGAE short film contest, among other awards.
In 2021 he makes Las Visitantes (Women Visiting a City), selected by the Torino Short Film Market and is a guest at the Short Film Corner in Cannes. To date, Las Visitantes has been selected at festivals such as FICX, Curtas Vila do Conde, Guanajuato, Dokufest or Clermont-Ferrand, where it wins the Best Comedy Award, and the Best European Film Award, award that shortlists it directly for the European Film Awards. Since 2020 he has been working on his first feature film, Bodegón con fantasmas (Still Life With Ghosts), selected at La Incubadora (ECAM), in the Filmmaker Lab of TIFF, Focus Copro in Cannes and which has won the first prize at Abycine Lanza 2021 and the Film Center Serbia Development Award at When East Meets West 2023. Still Life With Ghosts will be produced by Quatre Films, Cuidado con el perro and Ikki Films
