A young boy performs a ritual to bring back his dead mother, but the spell goes wrong and he contacts somebody else.

'Mother' was the end result of the project ‘Mother, a Study in Horror’, which lasted seven months and was aimed at understanding the horror genre in film.

I divided this project into two parts. The first one revolved around theoretical research on the techniques horror filmmakers use to create fear in their audiences, followed by an analysis of some of the best scenes in the genre.

In the second part, I created the short film, which involved working in several areas of filmmaking, and I finished this project interviewing Jaume Balagueró, one of the best Spanish horror film directors.
