STRANGE WAY OF LIFE is the new English language short film by Pedro Almodóvar, starring Pedro Pascal and Ethan Hawke. 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…. Run Time 31 Mins.

Official Selection at the 2021 Venice Film Festival & New York Film Festival.
