Director Statement

“Sheets” is a film describing a story of a dystopian situation. Fear of the unknown and from authorities bump together, giving us the conflict of the characters themselves, who at the same time have to face two kinds of challenges, the satisfaction of being alive and the obedience to limitations in their normal life. The climax will be when an emigrant family appears in their backyard asking for help. Now the family has a difficult decision to make. The slow pace of the camera is something which illustrate the elements of an apathetic society far from being alive. At certain moments the noise of governmental vehicles and their sirens transmits the feeling of death as in "Seven Seals". And the voice of the telephone installed which communicate with family will be like the very character of death in Bergman's masterpiece.
