MOTHER'S LOVE, 10min., Puerto Rico, Thriller
Directed by Pedro Silva
A young man breaks into a house without imagining that a mother's love will change his life.
From a young age, cinema has been one of my greatest passions. Watching movies and dreaming that one day I would make them was always in my mind. As a child my father gave me a video camera as a gift, and that ignited a spark of creativity in me. I started making Stop Motion animation shorts with my toys. Then I continued recording parodies of television commercials to entertain my family. In my teenage years I began to show interest in the horror genre. I remember that films like An American Werewolf in London, Child's Play and my all-time
favorite The Thing, inspired me to create stories that bristle the skin of even the bravest. My long term goal as a filmmaker is to help build a Horror Cinema movement in Puerto Rico that can be recognized by it's quality that depict local stories that can connect with the latino culture and that can entertain and all audiences, becoming a viable investable niche, that ultimately helps the growth of the local Boricua Film Industry. Today, that inspiration to tell chilling stories continues to be my north. My approach is aimed at telling stories that I have called Creole
Horror. These are paranormal stories, urban legends about monstrous creatures and chilling events that are part of our culture, and have never been told in the way I plan to.
