Director Statement

This project is born from the need to tell about the problems and benefits of water and happen in the place where I live.

Try to experiment with the cinematographic language when doing it with pure images, sound and montage, what I feel is pure cinema.

The aesthetic decision of not having individual characters is because I do not feel the right to talk about someone other than me.

What I hope with this short film is for each person to feel and draw their conclusion that this is what happens with water today.
