Director Statement

As an artist and citizen, I wonder what makes someone become a wanderer, living in the gutters, walking alone, far from people who love them. In my point of view, there are a myriad of motives, and it´s not up to me to judge.
In a poetic way, ´´ The cold within myself´´ adresses this group of individual that we don´t always treat as human being. We forget them. But they are dad, husbdands, part of family they´d like to reconnect.
The main character is a father who seeks to encounter his son, who no longer reconizes him. It´s a person learning again to have affection, even there´s a cold within himself- that means a feeling of sadness and fatigue.
This movie brings as references ´´ Paris, Texas( dir. Win Wenders) and the music video ´´ On the nature of daylight´´, because they present lonely characters in search of something, dealing with sadness, fatigue and despair. The red as a narrative motif in Win Wenders´masterpiece was used in this short film; the ideia of music as a guideline was taken from touching Max Ritcher´s music video.
