Pesadilla means nightmare in Spanish
Pesadilla tells about the fragility of a man shifted between a daydream reality and eyes closed life.

Does a nightmare start with eyes open or close?
Can we read another person’s dream?
Does a nightmares end with the eyes close or open?
Does somebody that can’t sleep stay wake?
What does prevent us from sleeping?
What does prevent us from staying awake?
We all have already daydreaming once, are we sure we never lived with the eyes closed?

Pesadilla is developed around the daily stress of « being our self », that sometimes is next to us and sometimes is above and all around: fear, insomnia, anxiety, indecision…this stress troubles our sleep, it deforms it as it does with our personality, creating many “us” in our self… a very consistent part of our self is designated to sleep: is it the reality or the dreams that has the bigger impact on us? How do we deal with our self to define dreams and reality? Pesadilla wish to explore this time-lapse journey, this imaginary time of sleeping where the weirdness and the burlesque meet each other, flirting with the more secret and hidden side of our self, going towards a border where a grotesque humor and a sweet melancholia share the same place.
