"Melancolia" means Melancholy in Spanish.
I wanted to explore human relationships, but I didn't want to have a clear message for the audience, I wanted them to have their own conclusions. Like in a Rorschach test, you explore in this film what you really have inside.
We filmed this just before the coronavirus outbreak, so it has gained even a deeper meaning to understand human relationships and what it means to have people coming in and out of your life and the impact we can all have on each other.
This is a poem and the impact it has on you is totally individual, it has no wrong or right message.
