Production Background & Fun Facts: We wanted to make a film that honoured the literary concept coined by Portuguese writer, Fernando Pessoa; the heteronym. Pessoa published works under a variety of pseudonyms and was known to adapt his behaviour and mannerisms to build the idea that he was embodying a different character under this new name. We created a film in which our main character was split into five; Vigil and his four heteronyms. Living in an old mirror shop, Vigil interacts with his reflections,; each representing a different part of himself. .
