A man, troubled by a severe nervous system disease, finds himself paralyzed in a remote and hostile environment after an accident. His situation takes new directions as he surrenders and accepts his new reality.
"The cactus" is an independent horror short film based on the short story written by the Argentinian author Santiago Dabove.
It started in 2018, when I found an interesting aesthetic that had me searching for the perfect project to use it.
I came across the short story "Ser pó", by Santiago Above, and everything came together. It was the perfect material to explore.
The project was almost abandoned and resumed many times during 2019 to 2021, but eventually I managed to finished it at the end of 2022.
