Director Statement

Questo corto rimanda agli stereotipi classici di una seduta dallo psicologo e li stravolge. Abbiamo provato a ricreare una sensazione di spaesamento in cui lo spettatore non capisce cosa sta succedendo, non è chiaro dove vuole arrivare la trama, cosa che si capirà solo all'ultimo frame.
Volevamo prendere in giro tutto il contesto psicoterapeutico, mettendo a disagio il tipico paziente angosciato e prendendo in giro gli psicologi saccenti. Essere un dottore laureato in Psicologia clinica, oltre che regista di queto corto, permette di avere un idea più chiara dello psicologo nell'immaginario comune e di giocare con quest'ultima.
