Pánico a una Muerte Ridícula

Tom is obsessed by ridiculous deaths. A tragic piece of news will mark the beginning of a strange travel through fear, love and destiny.

Film notes

“Panic to a ridiculous death” is a modern Greek-like Tragedy where our mysterious and psychotic hero fights against that powerful God called Fate. As a director, I’ve tried to make the audience feel constantly uncomfortable with a strange predisposition to an inevitable misfortune. That’s what we all call Life. Life is full of colours and sweet moments. But Life also shows the dark side of humans, the immensity of chance, and the terrible injustices and blood baths all around the world. Further than the Fear-Love-Destiny triangle formed by the main characters, the film explores the vulnerability of human beings, with a deep sensation of never ending nostalgia. The same as when the Circus leaves the village and there is a wonderful rain of fireworks.
