Based on the book of the same name by Chilean writer Marcelo Matthey, the film tells Matthey’s story with a simple style that recalls school compositions. This short film by the prolific Torres Leiva weaves together a handful of perceptions of a solitary and contemplative man. Simple day to day tasks and hobbies like watering plants, studying singing and harvesting grapes are denatured and considered as if for the first time. With an off-camera narration by this mature man with his unhurried voice, Sobre cosas que me han pasado submerges us into the traces of associations more than into the associations themselves, in fleeting moments – urban and mundane – more than in their consequences. And it gives us back the other side of the day, made of small events of little importance, by which, without us knowing or being able to control it, the unexpected appears.
