WHEN I KILLED THE CAT

Whilst trying to get his life back on track, a heart-broken Jim is asked to spend the weekend in his ex-girlfriend’s house minding their old cat whilst she takes off on a lavish holiday with high-flying new partner.

DIRECTOR’S STATEMENT

Mansour Forouzesh

Our interaction with the world before us is not based on the realties of the world as they are, but on our psychological and cognitive characteristics. These are our perceptions that present the “reality” of the world to each of us in a different way. 

The more traumas and problems we face in life, the more different our interactions with this world are and the more misunderstandings we have. In fact, our interaction with the world is not based on the reality of the world, but on our understanding of that reality. It is this different perception of human beings that makes everyone describe a situation as enjoyable or painful in a completely different way. 

In the short film “When I Killed the Cat”, the main character of the story decides to commit suicide in a tragic process, but this tragedy is a pleasant and joyful moment for him. In fact, the contradiction in reality that lies in the “death“ of the character and his “liberation” from the traumas of life stems from his incomplete understanding of the world around him and his mental disorder. 

This misunderstanding and mental disorder is actually the result of his  mother’s abnormal behaviour. In the script structure of this film, we have tried to make the audience understand the world as Jim understands it and share in its joys and sorrows.
