Private Project


In Greek mythology Ananke is the goddess that represents the personification or power of fate. In an imaginary present, humanity faces extinction because of a terrible pandemic. The only way to escape death is to avoid all contact with human beings, to flee, to be completely alone. After long wandering a man and a woman find shelter in an isolated house in the mountains. They hope to save themselves by adapting to an essential, almost primitive life. Nature watches over them, observing them from above. Everything flows, everything changes, everything is in transformation. Is avoiding man enough to avoid death?

Director Statement

I believe in cinema, insofar it´s a form of art that focuses on the deep exploration of the human character, mind and animus, and through my little contribution I hope to grasp something more about these strange animal beings called mankind.
