synopsis
In a park in the light of day, Gerard hides behind a pillar with his camera primed. Focused, he locks onto the face of a tourist he doesn't know, who reminds him of a girl from his dreams. Hours later he awakens in his studio, surrounded by sculptures, newspaper clippings and photographs of other girls who also share a certain something he cannot put into words. With the eyes of one, the nose of another and the mouth of a third, he creates a photo collage of the girl he dreams of. To materialize his obsession, his hands work tirelessly to sculpt a clay bust of this girl, opening a door to a creation that will swallow him entirely.

director
Arnau Segarra Braunstein - director and screenwriter of The Inner Shadow - denies journalism studies to devote himself completely to the movies. With a strong basis in cinema thanks to a family of cinephiles and a degree in Audio Visualization, he shot his first short films, Un Mal Trago (Bad Experience, 2008); Cupido, (Cupid, 2009); Las Memorias de Percy (Percy's Memories, 2011); Caída Libre (Freefall, 2012) often taking multiple roles in the filmmaking process: screenwriting, directing, camera, and producing. For the first time in 2013, a whole team supported his latest project, The Inner Shadow, and backed by the coproduction support of TKSH Films and crowdfunding platform Verkami - plus numerous other contributions - he managed to shoot this ambitious short.

filmmaker's note
In search for his masterpiece, the artist submerges himself daily in the creative process, even if this drive for perfection can at times border on obsession. The Inner Shadow portrays an artist lost in the search for self-improvement through his work. Finding his masterpiece, he turns his back on a reality to which he can never return. The artist's innate strengths of never accepting defeat and always seeking paths into the unknown are founding pillars of The Inner Shadow. At the same time, it's a warning that limitless artistic ambition can stay forever unsatisfied and result in a withdrawal from even the simplest pleasures of life.
