The Incredible Shrinking WKND

The Incredible Shrinking WKND

by Jon Mikel Caballero

Synopsis | Cast & Crew | Technical Information

Alba and her friends just want to enjoy a little weekend getaway in the woods. But when her boyfriend Pablo abruptly breaks up with her, Alba is mysteriously forced to relive the exact same day over and over again – until she learns that each repetition is shorter than the last. It is not a loop, is a countdown. And time is running out.

Director Bio

Having previously stunned audiences with short films Hibernation (2012) and Cenizo (2016), winning no fewer than 55 awards on the festival circuit, Spanish writer-director Jon Mikel Caballero makes his long-awaited feature debut with The Incredible Shrinking WKND.

Director Statement

I wanted to use the timeloop subgenre in a different way. For me it is a perfect metaphor for the farewell to youth. You can think life is repetitive as a loop, but suddenly you discover that each time is a little bit shorter. This is the journey of Alba. And I think it is very universal for our entire generation of thirties.
