Press Release

A man rides a horse across the desert that separates him from Bitter Creek. He comes to visit Sheriff Jake. Twenty-five years earlier, both the sheriff and Silva, the rancher who rides out to meet him, worked together as hired gunmen. Silva visits him with the excuse of reuniting with his friend from his youth, and they do indeed celebrate their meeting, but the next morning Sheriff Jake tells him that the reason for his trip is not to go down the memory lane of their old friendship....

The strange way of life referred in the title alludes to the famous fado [a style of Portuguese singing like a folk tale or shanty - Ed] by Amalia Rodrigues, whose lyrics suggest that there is no stranger existence than the one that is lived by turning your back on your own desires.

The short film is written and directed by Pedro Almodóvar and stars Pedro Pascal and Ethan Hawke. It comes to cinemas in the UK after a special screening at Cannes Film Festival in May.
