La Petite Mort

Audrey grew up in a discordant family. Years of quarrels between her parents and their negligence caused Audrey to devote herself to watching every romance film on TV. "Audrey" is a name she gave herself because Audrey Hepburn is her favorite. And when Audrey finally thought that she had encountered true love, she found that she had confused reality and fantasy.


I first had the idea for this film when I was watching a Mexican Cinema film called, “Enamorada”. This film features beautiful guitar music and a cliche love story. But somehow it clicked. It inspired me to write a story with a protagonist so obsessed with love stories on the big screen that it impacts and changes her life.
A cinephile as I am, movies play a vital part in building up my life philosophy and creating unrealistic high standards for meeting the love of my life. So in some aspects, I did draw a little inspiration from myself. This film is called, “La Petite Mort” And it’s quite literal in the sense that It’s a story about movies, love, and people who love and believes in the movie just a bit too much.
