Director statement

“‘I feel like a corpse, I must hurry up and bury myself before I start to stink!’ From this observation I developed the desire to witness my own funeral: a basic desire, which I believe everybody must have felt sometime. It was a personal need of mine to see my childhood and adolescence dead and buried, in order for me to close my relationship with my relatives and be reborn as an adult. However, in this short film there is an ambiguity leading one to suspect that the protagonist is not dead. This ambiguity reflects my real situation. Today, a year on, I can sincerely say that the coffin on the hearse was empty because I am still wearing my own corpse, in search of a grave in which to bury it.”
