THE NOWHERE ROOM (Based On My Mother’s True Story)
United States / Short Film /
14 minutes / English
Director: Alessandro Mini
Producer: Alessandro Mini, Solomon Chertok, Laki Latinka Igrutinovich
A mother wakes up naked in a strange dark room that looks like a miniature of a Gothic Catholic Cathedral. The walls are painted with horrific images of eyes, crosses, pieces of human bodies. At her left a pillar with an old film projector, in front of her a black door with a old elementary desk in front, at her left a toilet with a speaker and behind a big door. She doesn’t remember how she arrived there nor why. Her last memory is of walking in a city street arguing with her 10 year old son. Now she is trapped and her son is missing!
