“ESTEBAN: I’m drawing the last ticket! Who will be the lucky winner? The girl? The Lord? For your wife? Come both!

From now on, the carousel will be closed…”

This happened suddenly – distortion is a show that can be enjoyed from different perspectives, according to the age of the viewer. The sale of the last ticket, for the last round, on the merry-go-round is the moto for puppets, actress, animated cinema and video to intertwine. Visually rich, it exhibits a collection of fragments of collective memory and invites you to immerse yourself in a place of your own time and space, which concentrates the past, the present and the future, and places us permanently in a place of passage. Metaphorically, it operates on the horizons of survival, precariousness, migration and a new beginning – a good start, we hope! | Director’s Note
