Award of Excellence – “X” (Spain)

Title: X
Runtime: 9 min
Country: Spain
Director: Rachel Choy
Placement: Award of Excellence
Competition: December, 2017

Synopsis: Do you want to take a trip inside the mind of a psychopath?

In “X” we enter the most intimate thoughts of a serial killer in which he confesses to us directly and everything is mixed with oneiric images from his subconscious. This creates a visual poem that is both beautiful and macabre, repugnant and attractive, because little by little the audience succumbs to his spell, which is horrifying when you become aware of it. This poem is framed within a story with a shocking ending.
