Information for the Audience: 

The idea was to create a short film that would trigger the imagination of the spectator by mixing fantasy with a bizarre reality or view of the human life. First I wanted to create a character that will expose the dissatisfaction of people with the way our society works. This feeling of materialism and false freedom that suffer most of the human kind these days. To express this feeling I created a character that can be stereotyped as a narcissistic genius. A person that his only goal is to control and manipulate others and hates to be controlled by laws or government. The idea was to make this character suffer some psychical tortures created by the Devil (An extremely sexy girl). The tortures that he is going to suffer will be related to some illustrations that the religions created for hell (Very elaborate and painful tortures). Also, I wanted to separate very clearly the reality from the purgatory in order to contrast those places. The real world was di-saturated and the hell would use more vivid colors (Red, green and yellow) that will evoke in the audiences a sense of a vivid bizarre place. 

The objective of the film is to illustrate those phobias created by culture, religion and politics and how we have to deal with them without an exit. Also, as a director, I want to illustrate “The individual thinking” (against collective thinking), as a creative and revolutionary way of life that allows people to understand and explore situations, problems, and actions i
