Anticorro is a famous exercise of the FAMU camera department shot on 35mm black and white in the studio. The original brief was for an advertising spot for stainless steel knives. Over time, the author's concepts began to be loser. In this case, we're heading into the near future, where our heroine is threatened by a dangerous robot.

A short film oscillating between fiction and documentary introduces the viewer to a not very well-known torture method called white room torture. This means of torture confines the prisoner to a cell where everything is white with a constant white light and only white rice served for meals. One of the side effects of this torture is the gradual erasure of the prisoner's visual memory. This is the central motif of the film, which draws on the testimony of an anonymous Iranian political prisoner. He spent eight months in a white cell in Evin, and eventually could not even remember his own parents' faces.

In the school cafeteria, three friends tell stories about their classmate Eliz, who is the focus of their interest. The boys deal with their affection for her in their own way: they compete with each other to see who can come up with the better and scarier story. In all of them, Eliz plays the role of the main, demonic heroine. One tells a scary story, one tells a sports story, and one adds a romantic story. But is everything true, or just figments of their imagination? The film tells the story of pre-pubescent boys encountering the opposite sex for the first time. Boys at this age start to be fascinated by girls, but at the same time, this unfamiliarity makes them afraid in a way and they don't know how to deal with it.
