Remember Me

Lonely and about to retire, Miguel sells tickets in a theater when a request arrives from an elder's residence for a social volunteering performance. Rejected by the theater company, Miguel convinces the stage technician, stylist and waitress to rehearse and perform the play with him instead for the elders, risking their jobs if the company found out.

Director Statement

"Remember me" is a love letter to acting, both in the plot and in the way I wanted to direct it, prioritizing our low budget and limited shooting time in achieving a believable acting performance. I was also very interested in filming sequence shots and stage blocking with narrative meaning. The stage blocking in the first scene in the dressing room pays off in the final scene with a surprising ending.

I hope you enjoy some meaningful quotes that pay tribute to the reality of our industry, like the long working hours away from family or the difficulties in finding paid roles as actors age.
I also hope you leave the cinema after watching "Remember Me" inspired to call and spend time with your parents and grand parents.
We produced this short film during the COVID pandemic, and had to modify the script, like eliminating a kissing scene, or eliminating another scene that was meant to be shot at an elder's residence. I wanted to use that day also as a social event with real residents, but we had to avoid jeopardizing their health.
So, I do hope that next time you walk by an elder sitting down in a bench, contemplating time, you engage in some small talk that can enrich both your days.
During filming, my grandmother's sister died at age 97 with COVID. This happened on the night before our third and final shooting day. Luckily, she had a good life till the very end and passed away in her bed, almost sleeping. When we shot our final scene, as I was directing our oldest cast member, age 78, at the end of the third day, I shared some tears on set, thinking of my great aunt, Maruja. The intensity and sincerity of this scene that speaks about Alzheimer's disease, together with my rawness on set, had the entire crew with glossy eyes for a minute. That became such a powerful moment. Each one of us, connecting.
So my wish for you, dear spectator, my dear audience, is that you enjoy watching it and remember how each day, we can make powerful moments, that one day, will become our cherished memories when we grow old.
