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.

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.
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.
