· TRANSCRIPCIÓN DE LA NOTICIA
Probably the most chilling film of the festival was El Espejo Humano (The Human Mirror), a short horror/thriller shot in black and white about a young woman’s descent into paranoia and violence under the influence of the media’s constant fear-mongering. Billed as “based on a true story,” it tells the tale of anxious seventeen-year-old Alicia, who takes to staying home from school, feigning sickness. Absorbing the atrocities reported on the news all day, she begins to become paranoid and suspicious of her parents, with horrifying consequences. The young woman playing Alicia, Anna Castillo, does an admirable job of conveying complex emotions with very little dialogue and steers clear of giving a clichéd “horror performance.” The title, The Human Mirror, is thought-provoking in itself – suggesting that we, as consumers of media that churns out story after story of shocking violence, are at risk of becoming reflections of the world we are subconsciously absorbing.
