A young woman wakes up in a mysterious forest with no recollection of why she is there. After finding a loose tooth on the ground beside her, she spots the light of a lantern in the distance and follows it in hopes of finding a way out of the darkness. Walking becomes running, and running quickly becomes hiding in the shadows, when she discovers that the person carrying the lantern is her mirror image.

Rubén González

Rubén is from Tarragona, Spain. At 18 years old, he moved to London where he began his studies in film and started shaping his directing style. Besides filmmaking, Rubén is active in different creative mediums; in 2018 he held his first photography solo exhibition, ‘Nice To Meet You, I Wish I Never Did’. Rubén’s work tends to delve into the depths of the human mind and study its contradictory aspects, experimenting with the form and trying to find new ways to engage the viewer.
