It Is (Not) Yours

(No) Te pertenece

“It Is (Not) Yours” is the way of representing the ties that connect us with the people that by nature we are tied to and consider as a refuge, that nevertheless we want to leave behind but we cannot.

A young man wants to inhabit the house that he thinks he is part of. However, the house forces him to comply with his wishes, until the young man realizes that his true desire is to leave behind the place he feels attached to.

Director’s statement
This short film arises from the relationship between my mother and me, a relationship of emptiness and ties, of absence and presence, of control and freedom; the short film addresses issues such as loneliness, emptiness and the ties we have with our relatives with whom we sometimes create invisible borders. Through this short film, the idea of feeling trapped inside a space that we consider our own is captured; as is the home, where we feel safe inside.
In order to connect all these emotions, I resort to the experiences lived with my mother, with whom I built communication barriers in an intimate space. Undoubtedly, emptiness plays a very important role; since through these they allow me to talk about the feeling of loneliness. On the other hand, the home space is the place that we associate with the idea of family, with which we feel connected and tied.
