“One never forgets, just stops remembering”
"Metafísica" started as one of those thoughts that keep you awake at night and came to fruition through a writing exercise which took shape til it became what it is now: an interpretation of the pain caused by a separation and framed within the day to day life.
On a professional level, it is a short film which wants to be financed through crowdfunding, as it is an independent project.
Metafísica follows Alex, a 28-year-old man, as he tries to move on with his life while reminiscing about the past, 157 days after his last breakup
FROM THE DIRECTOR
“Sometimes I long for your memory, embracing my bad intentions”
In Metafísica, I am trying to tell a story with a very personal component. And a very intimate one as well which, however, follows a situation so familiar to many. That moment in which time goes on, without any worries, and it doesn't even stop to make sure you feel better or with the necessary strength to keep going.
Finding himself in a situation that threatens to become his normality, Alex must rediscover his true self and assume that is possible to go on, even if that does not mean any happiness for him.
Pau Larré is ALEX
A 28-year-old guy, kind of sarcastic but with a great sense of humour. 65% shy and 80% reliable. Intense, sensitive and noble in his feelings. After his last breakup, he's been trying to recover and move on in the best way even if sometimes he hasn't made it.
In Metafísica, we meet him on the day one hundred and fifty seven of not making it... or was it the one hundred and fifty eight?
Loredana Barbu is DIANA
An optimistic, transparent woman but practical if the situation calls for it, Diana is 27-year-old woman, who doesn't mess around. Joyful, full of energy and inner light, she was the lighthouse which sometimes helped Alex to not get lost in his thoughts
In Metafísica, we get to know her through Alex's memories as that woman with the ability to make any day better just with the smile on her face.
Pau Larré took acting lessons at the Escola de Teatre de Barcelona. After working in customer management, teams and workspaces coordination, he reconnects with the artistic scene through this project.
Loredana Barbu has a masters degree in Psichology from University of Bucarest, with experience as project coordinator and also as a model. This short film is one more step in her acting experience.

ABOUT YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS
We believe all of you can be potential producers of “Metafísica” and that is why we ask for your help to reach our main goal. All the money gathered Will be destined to cover the following expenses:
• Transportation for the artistic and technical team during shooting days. Also, location rental expenses.
• All the lighting material, camera and sound equipment and art department expenses. Cinema requires technical means with which perhaps many of those who will help us are not familiar, the same means that contribute to create the magic and the atmosphere that will be seen later on screen. We will be happy to give you all the details everything, if you are interested
• Postproduction expenses (editing, color correction, sound mix, soundtrack) and distribution of the film.
Our goal is that “Metafísica” achieves the best and, with al lof your help, we can make it happen.
The project's script was written since the beginning of the present year. From March until mid-June, the project has been in pre production phase.
In the last few months, we are shaping the last aspects of the creative part so the artistic vision we have in mind fits the technical aspects of the project. Shooting is expected to begin on July, ideally the dates would be the 7, 8, 14 and 15 of july
August, September and part of October will be used for editing, post production and color correction so the film can be distributed to Festivals and premiere in November, which is when we will be delivering rewards.
