  2. SINOPSIS: 70’s trash movie queen Soledad Miranda wakes up from the dead, to find herself not in heaven but trapped in a film – the vision of a devoted fan. As her interaction with the “Auteur” reveals the extent of his obsession, she takes drastic steps to escape his reality.

    The title comes from the word in English idol, but pronounced in Japanese, the word becomes idoru.

    IDORU is my third short and the one I am most proud of. It took me three years to make. It only materialized when Mr. Zhou Bing, the executive producer granted me the funding and also when Jess Franco, the prolific director gave it his blessing. He gave an enormous boost by agreeing to take part in the film.

    My biggest challenge afterwards, was to find the actress to portray Soledad Miranda for whom the film pays tribute. I looked in England, France, Spain and finally found her in the States. Four days before the shoot in New York and to my relief, I found the perfect talent in Carmen Cabrera. Not only she was Spanish but she also resembled astonishingly to Soledad.

    It was an amazing and intense experience that I will never forget.

    Hope you enjoy.
