Director’s Notes

Though it is true for all my works, in this one in particular the title of this short (Yet Another Day) is important, because it alludes indirectly to the everyday threat of violence hanging over those people living with what I define as one of the “hidden epidemics” of our contemporary societies; an illness suffered by 5% of women according to clinical data from 2014. Like any dependency generated by pressure and anxiety, and which can lead to personality disorders, the “enemy” these patients/sufferers have to face is their own surrounding environment and their everyday “self”, which they have to deal with and reshape in order to rebuild their psychology and their circumstances.

On a formal level, I was interested in keeping the camera and the narration very close to the protagonist with the purpose of introducing the spectator as much as possible into this experience which is so disturbing and misunderstood in our society and which, because of that, has become a new taboo. Precisely what interested me about this project, using one of the tools of cinema, was to work with and confront this taboo; to create, as André Breton wanted, a “glass house” in which you could see through all the walls and enter without any kind of barrier into the hidden lives and situations of other people and gain access to new experiences, which would resituate us as spectators/individuals. It is for this reason that I took the decision to capture as directly and straightforwardly as possible, no matter how unsettling or unpleasant it might be, what is involved in a situation like this, portraying it like yet another day, ordinary and ephemeral; a real and possible yet another day
