POMPIDOO -POMPIDÚ

BOOK-PLAY-FEATURE FILM

Confronted with a family crisis, a schizophrenic artist must either face a painful past accepting her reality or else, remain in an imaginary Paris with the beautiful but increasingly dangerous voices inside her head.

Pompidoo is the story of Erica, a psychiatrically unstable young artist living a passionate romance full of poetry, truth, innocence and danger with a prince who rides a bike instead of a steed.

 

Aunt Susana, who took care of Erica when her mum died and her father moved to Paris with his new family, is now sick. So, with the excuse of having to help a friend, she asks Erica to go to Paris and stay with her dad.

 

Going to Paris to visit her father and his family is a nightmare for Erica since her twin siblings drive her crazy and her step mom makes her best effort to ignore her and make her feel a foreigner.

 

To stop her from going away, Inti steals-hides Erica’s spills (he exchanges them for mints) so that her mind is not stable and she does not stop seeing him. He also builds a Paris for the two of them. A Paris full of art in which anything is possible. A Paris in which Mona Lisa can have Frida Kahlo’s eyebrows and the flashes of tourist cameras can disappear with the blink of an eye. It is a Paris where the Centre Pompidou is actually “Pompidoo”. A Paris where the people dare live their madness freely. Inti is the voice of many truths. He speaks, reveals and shows things that are true. However, these intense emotions will lead Erica to experience peaks, which will even put her life at risk and drive her to attempt suicide.

 

Should she face her coming of age and reconcile with a past full of wounds taking in reality? Or should she stay in the ludic world of imagination and madness?

A raíz de una crisis familiar, una artista esquizofrénica deberá enfrentar un pasado doloroso aceptando su realidad o, permanecer en un París imaginario con las bellas pero peligrosas voces que habitan dentro de su cabeza.

Pompidú es la historia de Érica, una joven psiquiátricamente inestable, quien vive un romance imaginario repleto de poesía, verdades e inocencia con un príncipe, llamado Inti, que, en lugar de corcel, anda en bicicleta.

 

La tía Susana, que se hizo cargo del cuidado de Érica desde que la madre murió y el padre se mudó a París con su nueva familia, ahora está enferma. Por eso, con la excusa de que debe ayudar a una amiga, le pide a Érica que viaje a París.

 

Inti construye un París para ellos dos, en el que todo es posible. Allí, la Mona Lisa puede tener las cejas de Frida Kahlo y los molestos flashes de turistas japoneses desaparecen mágicamente en un instante. Un París en el que el museo Pompidou es “Pompidú” con tilde en la u. Un París en el que las personas se animan a vivir su locura en libertad. Inti es la voz de muchas verdades.

 

Dice, denuncia y evidencia cosas que son ciertas, pero tanta intensidad llevará a Érica a alcanzar niveles muy altos de descontrol que incluso pondrán en riesgo su vida. ¿Viajar a la adultez y reconciliarse con un pasado plagado de heridas asimilando la realidad? ¿O quedarse para siempre en un mundo lúdico de imaginación y locura?
