About a month ago we first learned about La Casa Muda, the first Latin American film to be shot entirely with a professional photo camera that also happened to be filmed in one single 72-minute sequence shot. And now we have an English-subbed teaser trailer to check out to see how things are progressing.
The film is still in audio post-production and on track for its March, 2010, completion. It was directed by Gustavo Hernandez, photographed by Pedro Luque, and produced by Gustavo Rojo at an amazingly low budget that amounts to $6,000 (US). La Casa Muda (The Silent House) digs deeply into the unexplored subject of psychological terror, and here’s the full synopsis provided to us by Rojo:
Laura (Florencia Colucci) and her father Wilson (Gustavo Alonso) settle down in a cottage that seems to be off the beaten track in order to update it since its owner (Abel Tripaldi) will soon put the house up for sale. They will spend the night there in order to start the repairs the following morning. Everything seems to go smoothly until Laura hears a sound that comes from outside and gets louder and louder on the upper floor of the house. Wilson goes up to see what is going on while she remains downstairs on her own, waiting for her father to come down. The plot is based on a true story that happened some time ago in a small village in Uruguay. La Casa Muda focuses on the last seventy-eight minutes, second by second, while Laura attempts to leave the house, which hides an obscure secret, unharmed.
REAL FEAR IN REAL TIME is the most remarkable underlying feature of the film, which will not go unnoticed by all those who may be willing to experience this different and disturbing filming experience.
In closing his email, Rojo joked, “Perhaps we may see the remake soon!!!”
