“Shhh” is a dark fairytale about a young boy, Guillermo, who uses his imagination to overcome his monstrous bully at night. Tired of being scared, Guillermo eventually takes matters into his own hands. Inspired by the lucid dreams of director Guillermo del Toro during childhood.
At the very beginning of the interview below, Guillermo del Toro discusses these childhood experiences with monster nightmares and lucid dreaming, which inspired this film:
This is an anti-bullying project created in our spare time with a low budget. A tribute to one the filmmakers we look up to since we were kids, Guillermo del Toro. It couldn't have been completed without many sleepless nights and a lot of help & support from our talented cast, crew, family and colleagues. The film had a great response in the festival circuit and we're very happy to finally share it with all of you here.
Please share/like/comment this film if you enjoyed it. We hope to bring more fun stuff to you. Gracias!
Happy Halloween!!! :)
