Director Statement

Despite the fact that the anecdote stems from a tragic event (the death of a character by suicide), Ametsuchi unfolds as two characters who grieve in their own way and take possession of it in order to fulfill a last wish. that will make them happy. Away from everyone who can cause them harm and fear, they embark on a path where they will recognize their own desires and identity. The idea of ​​this project arises from the desire to deepen the precept of the imminent reconstruction/reappropriation of memories after the death of a loved one and, from that, rethink the present, as well as the future.

My main objective with this project is to carve and tell from the narratives of queer adolescents, as well as the ups and downs of their day-to-day experience; from the formation of their networks of affection and chains of care, to the wishes of their future. Ametsuchi is born from the constant desire to see works that my child/adolescent self would have loved to see in order to feel recognized on screen from a perspective that does not start from adult centrism, but from understanding and anagnorisis.
