A troublesome new set of orthodontics is just one of the factors that provoke a midair crisis for a flight attendant.

Director's Statement

AIRHOSTESS-737 is a story that I experienced entirely in a dream. It is the piece I was missing to complete my trilogy PATISION AVENUE & ROUTE-3, films about a road, a journey, a route. Films with a character as the central figure, who is eventually drowned by his own subconscious or, as I present it, by the surrounding space that encloses him. I strongly identify with this heroine, a child of an unprepared mother who was unable to give her the care, acceptance and love that she needed and so she remained hurt and distant. This film is for all those who still seek reconciliation. Or, who haven't realised they need it. Even for some who think it is too late to try it, that is, after death. This film is a milestone for me, as it is my short before my debut feature film where I got the chance to, freely, express my cinematic language. Production wise, building an airplane-set was one of the most demanding yet interesting tasks to date!
