Director Statement

"All the things I carry with me" is a psychological thriller that explores the darkest areas of the human mind. What would be the shape, texture and physical manifestation of a deep anguish that haunts us? This is the fundamental idea of ​​the project: Giving corporeal shape to a stain that is a metaphor for the demons that inhabit us. But how to combat something that is inside of us? The work on the point of view makes the audience feel in their own body the altered perception of reality and the growing despair of the protagonist. The staging presents a thick and dark story using framing, editing, photography and sound design to captivate the audience with a physical and sensory proposal. The plot unites in rigorous black and white, past and present as two extremes of the same conflict. This is a story of ambiguous behavior and uncomfortable silences, where the line that divides reality and nightmare is intentionally blurred. There is no way out if the monster is inside us.
