La Solitude

Javier is a street artist who presents a show of ventriloquism with Chuy, a wooden puppet who chose not to speak again. This complicate the show and their friendship, making them reflect on life itself.

Film notes

"La Solitude" born of the everyday life. From a conversation in a cafeteria between the writers Joseph Cahill and Teresa Aguilera. They wondered: why we all make the same mistakes over and over? Not only that, why are we always used to blame something or someone of our luck, of our fate?

So we decided to make "The Solitude". A simple story about a simple character. A ventriloquist very talented, but in a very bad time in his life and his career, because his puppet and best friend decide don’t talk again. And in that loneliness and despair, he don’t understand that all his problems are in his mind, inside him.

It is a story for each of us to reflect on itself, reflect about friendship and about life itself.
