Director Statement

Our filmic look is about people and events of our time, we try to make films that can multiply or look at the world, sometimes in a poetic way, other times in a raw way. In our view, each film has a good gestation time until it is ready, then, after we mature, we can share our fruits with people and let them go their way in the world.
