Nekydallo is a state hidden in a time capsule. Εither you die in there or you become a butterfly.

Nekydallo: Integument of a dead body, last transformation of the caterpillar


To become a butterfly, a caterpillar first digests itself. But certain groups of cells survive, turning the soup into eyes, wings, antennae and other adult structures. All that the caterpillar was and all that the butterfly will be are contained in the cocoon, but one form must relinquish itself that another might emerge.  This kind of change is mysterious, hidden, and full of surprise. Metamorphosis is a process, which involves struggle, dissolving, reimagining and revising. It is not always easy, however, when you emerge, you will have a greater appreciation for who you are.

Director's Note

Nekydallo is a personal testimony to the pain of my father's death. One day I met a man who told me in a simple way that he had also lost someone. That simplisity made me see what is underground of the surface. I saw all my self-destruction because of my mourning and my imprisonment in this situation. So I decided to make this film. I wanted to tell this man and to myself that you can reach the bottom, but you have to find the power to get out and that we do it ourselves.
