Director Statement

This short film tells the story of a young woman who feels threatened by her own house. Even knowing that this can not be, she has a constant threatening feeling and self-medicates against anxiety and phobias.
We are constantly comparing reality with her inner fears and how she projects them in the house. That is why we play with a very contrasted aesthetic to underline the dialectic of the argument.

The final shot belongs to one of the group that shows reality. We saw her lying down, scared, by this "non-existent" menace...but then she's pulled off the bed. The question is: if the threat was inside her head and it was fictitious, why is this supernatural event happening? Because actually this woman is not crazy, there is something dangerous in her house...and she feels it. We had deceived the viewer by showing that the woman had a mental problem, when in fact she was the only one who could see danger.

"In and Out" talks about how people judge each other (even if it's a fictional character) and about the power of image.
