The story is set in a student flat, during a party. In one of the rooms, three poeple involved in a polyamorous relationship are having fun and fooling around. As they are about to have sex, two of them, Rita and Marc, experience something they haven’t been prepared for. An extreme situation which completely eludes the logical sense of their lives: the sudden death of Ada, the cornerstone of their love triangle. This moment represents the core of La mugre.
cornerstone of their love triangle. This moment represents the core of La mugre.
The characters’ reactions to this situation are the common thread of our story: the conscious denial of doing what would seem right and the incapability of facing the problem. Together with the clash of their personalities, which seem to be complementary but turn out to not be enough for each other, they are our short film’s backbone.
The three main characters have been involved in a romantic relationship for some months, although they have not really talked about it or classified it yet. Rita and Ada have been best friends since forever and met Marc when they started college, three years ago. They care about and love each other and, without knowing really how, they started to share everything.
After Ada, the realtionship’s catalyst, dies, Rita and Marc find themselves wandering around a party full of people having fun; a claustrofobic setting which literally traps them. Their vulnerability, their failed attempt of individualism and their inability to deal with such strong and extreme emotions will push them to the limit of their morality.
La mugre is a drama short, filmed in a single 15-minute take. Time flows without cuts, decisions are made in situ, and so happen their consequences. The project is the debut feature of a group of Media students at Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, who decided to bring to live a script which was created by them over a year ago.

We are launching this Crowdfunding campaign right in the middle of our pre-production fase, during which we are approaching different ways of financing our project. We recently organized the first La mugre Party (Esta Muerta Está Muy Viva) and are also informing about all the details of the process on social media.
The shooting will take place during the first week of May, so that the finished film is scheduled to premiere in late June.
