The two faces of loneliness comes to tell us about the “not beautiful”, that other darker part of life where feelings of sadness, loneliness, depression, insecurity, are there. Although our life seems complete, these feelings sometimes end up flourishing in us and, for this reason, the director wanted to “give visibility to the importance of taking care of our mental health” with this work (Sara Rico, Diario de Ibiza, 04/27/23).
The Ibiza Film Commission participated to help her obtain the necessary licenses to be able to shoot at the beach, and also to advise the production.
As for the event, the attendees, after enjoying a private screening of the short film, participated in a subsequent discussion with the team and, in addition, enjoyed a live concert by Dario Igea, the artist who lent his single “Junto al mar” for the soundtrack of the short film.
