This project travels in the genre of docufiction mixing a real event with the Japanese myth of Kitsunetsuki. The conceptual relationship came after the breakup, in the search for the causes and after a series of confessions about the strange behavior of that
My girlfriend started behaving differently when we went for a walk out of town. This series begins in the forest, wanders between a dream and reality. The memory and the search for something supernatural are mixed with the abstract meaning of love.
In ancient Japan, there was the belief of a possession by a forest spirit that took the form of a fox and sometimes assumed the corporality of a woman. She was posing as a lover or a young couple.
These supernatural beings were called Kitsunetsuki.
Its meaning has been transformed over time. Now, it is used to signal someone's weird
behavior, a state of being out of her mind, being confused about herself. And feel totally different from who you are.
