Mental Soirée – Manual for a study of Telepathy

Mental Soirée - Manual for a study of Telepathy

by Alberto Arellano

A Manual for a correct study of Telepathy in 3 steps leads the story trough an evocative universe in which the characters are immerse. The mind is like a shipwreck, which always leaves remains on the beach… Mental Soirée tells the story of two shipwrecked people who meet in a unique soirée.

The film pivots between two main ideas, both with the same weigh in terms of storytelling. The first one is based on an experiment- scientific approach of how to get an extrasensory perception in 3 steps, ( in fact we want to really invite the audience to test it by following those steps strictly…) and the second main idea is based on a poetic approach, suggesting a magnetic universe in which emotions, time, communication and feelings are diluted.
