Román tries to convince Marta to go with him to a small village in the countryside. Román likes to escape to the village as often as he can in hunt of a life that he considers more real than that offered by the city and its strife after success. Marta hesistantly agrees to go, but she is doubtful. During his next visit to the village, Román discovers that the paradise he has created in his own mind turns out to be an invader full of envy and disguised threats.
The plot behind “TE ESTARÉ ESPERANDO” aims to describe a psychological drama by means of pictures and sound. We´d like the audience to feel the anguish and concern experienced by the main character in the film.
Self-made paradises, escapism and search of happiness in a society that finds it hard to understand the dark side of things. The story also reflects upon the banality of what we call “supernatural” (allways so popular), because everything – reality, imagination, material and spiritual – is all found within ourselves.
What´s Te estaré esperando / I'll be waiting for you?
Te estaré esperando is the first in a series of short movies made by students of ECAM, Madrid Film Academy. By filming these short movies, we want to go beyond the academic environment at school, in order to produce professional works.
