SIGNAL

FILM: SIGNAL

DIRECTOR: DAVID BARRERA

PRODUCTION COMPANY: MINDED

GENRE: MYSTERY, SCI-FI, THRILLER

SYNOPSIS: A few decades into the future, a mission is planned by several international organizations with some funding from a couple of space industry giants. Effectively, this is a proof-of-concept mission demonstrating that the technology to support extended interstellar missions is ready for application. After 50 years of space travel sped up by a gravity engine–the Alcubierre drive–the ISC Robert Innes successfully arrives at the nearest stellar neighbor to the solar system, Proxima Centauri, with plans to sample planets in its orbit. Another objective of this mission is to find the source of a strange radio signal broadcasting from the area.

Upon arriving, the crew finds some surprising things: first, that telemetry is malfunctioning, making telemetry a round-the-clock operation; second, that the signal has no definite source, and seems to be coming from everywhere around them all at once; third, that there is a field of debris orbiting very close to the star. Upon investigating the debris field, they find that they not just shipwrecks but indeed human shipwrecks–two unconscious bodies in spacesuits are recovered from the wreckage, brought onboard, and stabilized. The signal, most definitely interfering with telemetry, proves too elusive to find; however, a major breakthrough occurs when the communications officer, Barry Whitacre, notices that the brainwave patterns of the two comatose astronauts rescued from the wreckage exactly match the signal he’s been staring at for hours on end. The captain Alex Beaumont decides to have the medical officer, Dr. al-Qatari, remove the drugs inducing coma and wake the survivors up for questioning.

DIRECTOR: DAVID BARRERA

PRODUCTION COMPANY: MINDED

GENRE: HORROR

SYNOPSIS: The way to the treasure lies in the mind of Efrén, Emilio’s only son, an innocent mentally handicapped boy who, without knowing it, holds in his confused head this enigmatic secret. Getting someone so special to reveal his secret turns out to be Dario’s hardest and most dangerous mission. In order to find the jewels Dario must first access the boy’s mysterious mind. To do this he kidnaps him from the psychiatric hospital, and takes him to a secluded place where he will use all his efforts to make him talk. During a long journey he has to play with the boy’s mind, and enter the wicked game of horror that Efrén used to play with his father.

This was the machiavellian way of Emilio to communicate with his son, since the boy in his special mind, was not able to react to direct conversation with another human being. The game transforms the innocent Efrén completely and he becomes a different being, someone even disturbing. He seems to enjoy reviving and performing the shocking horror scenes that he was forced to watch together with his diabolical progenitor, as if the world for him was a wicked play.

The distrusting and treacherous Emilio created the game to hide the treasures with the help of Efrén, burying the secret within the boy’s mind and making sure they were inaccessible for anyone else but him. The only way back to the treasure is by living the very same horrors as in Emilio’s favorite movies. Participating in such a morbid and delirious game, Darío will discover that the boy’s mind is a hell difficult to handle. Especially since Emilio, before dying, taught him to play a very special movie. A movie whose ending is much more terrifying than he could imagine, a film that could only have been directed by a real demon.

The search to find the notion of insubstantiality is ceaseless.

DIRECTOR: DAVID BARRERA

PRODUCTION COMPANY: MINDED, VISUM STUDIO

GENRE: HORROR

SYNOPSIS: The Jaundice of The Soul. Sarah (28), 8 months pregnant, is lost in the forest, desperate and very hurt. She flees from someone who pursues her and searches for his son, Max (8). She desperately tries to save her life and that of his son, who’s hiding in the dark and spooky forest.The electric thunderstorm in the forest introduces us to the emotions of Max (8). The forest is full of monsters that represent the fears of the unknown and the loss of the family structure on the arrival of a new brother. Max (8) has trapped his mother Sarah (28), but she does not know that he is the cause of her situation. She tries desperately to escape but cannot, as Max materializes his emotions and feelings making her pass through different adversities.The spiral movement of the camera is a mathematical- geometrical pattern that can be seen everywhere in nature and gives rise to the golden ratio. It’s called the Fibonacci Spiral. We can observe it in plants, animals (fish, birds, mammals), humans and their bodies, in phenomena such as tornadoes, hurricanes, galaxies, etc… etc… The spiral describes this formula as a solution to a problem. Max (8) is experiencing a process of loss of control. The overwhelming jealousy turns him into a monster consuming the purity of the soul of an 8-year-old child. He shows how unstable and cruel the human feelings can be. The numbers tell the time and the development of a natural phenomenon. It is the sequence of numbers beginning with the unit, each of its terms is the sum of the previous two (1,1,2,3,5,8,13, …). It is a mathematical construction that recurrently appears in the woods, in the dark, in the distribution of the leaves around the stem, in the arrangement of seeds in many flowers symbolizing birth and fruits grow following the sequences based exclusively on these numbers.The film symbolizes passionate love, anger and  hatred. The red colour exalts us paying more attention to the emotions Max (8) wants to convey and introduces us fully into his world. The yellow represents the suffering of the soul of Max and his disproportionately large head represents the accumulation of the ego and his uncontrolled impulses.
