Freely inspired by Henrik Ibsen’s ‘Little Eyolf’, The Frost explores a couple’s pain after losing their son. Rita and Alfred are plunged into a torrent of remorse when Eyolf dies, and weighing on their conscience is the fact that they were too busy with their absurd necessities to give their little one the affection he needed. Their blame is incessant in their determination to make each other suffer and pay for everything they didn’t do. Newcomer Ferran Audí, a man seasoned on theater stages, reintroduces the great Norwegian playwright’s inheritance in a film with psychological traces, headed forcefully and with determination by Aitana Sánchez-Gijón.
He was educated at the Institut del Teatre in Barcelona and later in London. He has acted on television, in cinema and theater, and debuted in 1989 as a theater director. He is the founder and director of Alta Realitat, for which he filmed the short Teresa y los no muertos (05) and his first feature film, The Frost.
