Filmfest 2015

"SUNRISE is a tragedy that tells a universal story of the loss of a child, of parental grief. The protagonist Joshi deeply troubled by the loss of his daughter and the eventual destruction of his family takes the spectator into an oneirophrenic space, right into the inner folds of his dreams, nightmares and memoria. The characters that inhabit this space are real people that he may have known in his life but they behave in a manner which may be his own subjective vision or perception of them... As in dreams he is not the master of the narration and sometimes he, too, is lost inside them. Sometimes the other characters take command of the narration but in the end, like all tragedies, Joshi, the hero must take control and take us to the catharsis."
