Pyskessa


Kirran & Duncan Bruce / France / 2011 / 9´44 / Super 16

A whimsical young girl, Pyskessa, is left to her own devices by the severe neglect of a depressive father. Her imagination blankets an underlying sadness and need for attention by creating an imaginary friend in the form of a radio. As time goes on her loneliness begins to push the boundaries of her sanity. The distorted reality she creates for herself is not enough to bare her burdens and her mental state deteriorates into a full emersion of her hallucinatory world. Her father may have realized the detriment of his behavior too late.
