Between nostalgia and the thousand faces of the night
It's true, I just wanted to make a short film with Sergi Vallès (‘The Name’, Dir Joel Joan; ‘Miss Dalí’, Dir. Ventura Pons). And I wanted to make it for the actor, thinking about him and his infinite possibilities. But we could not find the text that gave us both that inertia necessary to gather people to put the minimum money to carry it out. Until I got pregnant and I was with insomnia for a month and a half. And I began to notice all the noises of the stairs where I live.
Those nocturnal noises gave way to fears and I recalled ‘The Twilight Zone’, its everyday strangeness where apparently normal things happened for everyone except for the protagonist. And then I saw it clearly, I saw that woman who wants to start from scratch and asks for an extreme desire: "Forget about my face, about me, about everything".
This short is a tribute to the actors, with their capacity and sacrifice to mutate into everything we ask from them, to do it with their whole body and sometimes soul. And of course a tribute to that kind of Mystery that also spoke of deep things, such as indifference, fear of death or, in our case, the struggle between self-esteem and the environment in which we want to fit.
Come and see, but if you decide to make this trip to the unknown dimension, I will give you just one piece of advice: ask for worldly desires, those that one can assume if they are fulfilled.
