Trivia

Shot on four weeks, two weeks locked inside the staircase and two weeks on the road. In the first two weeks, the crew experienced a lot of claustrophobia, as they had to get to the set at 6 am (before sunrise) and leave at 7 or 8 pm (when it was already dark), never seeing daylight. On the second two weeks, it was completely the opposite: all the time in a very open space (a 6 km straight road in Pachuca, Hidalgo, 2 hours drive from Mexico City), on a natural landscape, facing sunburn, rain, wind, mosquitoes and more challenges of nature. They all felt a big contrast while shooting this film, as the audiences are supposed to feel while watching it. Director Isaac Ezban used to ask his crew every day: If you would stay on an incident for many years, would you ratter it happening at the stairs or at the road? When they were at the stairs, they all answered they preferred the road. But when they were on the road, they preferred the stairs. See more »

El Incidente. "Knowledge is power but ignorance is bliss"
13 March 2015 | by villegasrodolfoSee all my reviews

"Knowledge is power but ignorance is bliss" These words can be a guide for the experience you live if you dare to enjoy the movie The Happening. Film by the director Issac Ezban which creates a multiverse which presents both claustrophobic and agoraphobic atmospheres with surreal and scatological overtones. If you feel seeing the film that is a chapter of Twilight zone or Lost this is because the director mentioned that these are your main inspirations and even makes them a tribute by reference. But this does not detract, however, makes the film more interesting and makes you want to continue the journey to the end. After you watch the film it is impossible not to refer to Groundhog day (1993) by Harold Ramis and Inception (2010) Nolan because if we add to this amalgam a Kafkaesque touches the result could well be the incident. Like all independent production is very difficult to be projected at first in theaters, wait to be seen at special functions and festivals. When I was in DF try to get tickets for the few functions that existed in the Cineteca Nacional and these were exhausted. Which made my desire to see it rise. It was thanks to Guadalajara International Film Festival (FICG) in this its 30th edition; where they would make a unique presentation and that was where I was able to enjoy it. And not only that there were also a plus. A presentation with the director and cast at a session of questions and answers, all this at the end of the function. The wait was good, it was the best he had no great expectations and these were overcome by the written and presented on screen for Issac Ezban history. In words of the director this summer Incident projects in commercial cinemas so it is a good opportunity to see an original story and gain entry to dream worlds where the only way out is to move forward.
