Six years ago we decided to pursue this dream, a tiny one, that would become our window to the world of filmmaking.

Poster salvador


A 35-year-old man on the edge of social alienation has a dream. Alone at the bottom of the sand dunes, he digs. Iris appears as an errand-running messenger in the middle of this burning desert, but Salvador ignores her. In a therapist session, he describes how their paths have crossed again and again, as if by destiny.

This short film was shot in Los Angeles, California in the stage of 3rd Rock from the Sun at CBS Radford Studios, in Seinfeld’s train car.
