After its closure by the Colombian government in 2001, the legendary hospital La Hortúa in Bogotá was squatted in by former employees and their families. Andrés Cháves' short documentary observes their daily routines in the solitude of the crumbling buildings.

La Multitud 
Martín Oesterheld, Argentina 2012, 60 min, OmeU

In La Multitud, Martín Oesterheld looks at two derelict entertainment complexes in Buenos Aires built during different dictatorships, nowadays mainly traversed by migrants living in the area: a city shown from its ends.
