The point is that suddenly oppression of perspective isolates us.
Humans, it means.
Maybe characters of fairy – tales live in another way, or maybe they are not prisoners in a certain point of view.
After all their life is a confessed fiction.
On the contrary we can’t say anything without lying; that awful frame on/of the world we called/call perception, forces us towards loneliness and lies. But…
Perhaps we could try to deceive deception by framing the frame and turning daily fiction into fine fiction.
At least lies would be clear, white as silver screen.
Looking for sincerity is the cause of the adventure that involves/links the three main characters of this short film. They are performed by actors, victims of a pitiless and hypnotic, but also fantastic and ironic direction.
Any kind of illusions are part of the characters’ way. They are weird beings who will find purification into autism, and the only way to get the truth into obedience. Otherwise they would never understand that truth.
Losing role by decay, throwing the mask out like giving up just before the end losing identity, losing mind, losing everything.
Losing face.
