Director Statement

My intention was to create a film that deals with the protagonist’s descent into madness. I was interested in creating a specific atmosphere, close to a gothic melodramatic tale. Regine’s childhood trauma causes a behavior that borders on paranoid schizophrenia. The film is set in an undefined time or place, with the intention to reflect the protagonist’s inner psychological landscape. To some degree I am giving up on linear storytelling, with the hope of the film being experienced by gliding through time in a dreamlike and surreal state.
