Director Statement

The human being has always expressed a radical need to give artistic form to his experience of the world and the sacredness that inhabits the universe, as well as having an irrepressible and visceral attraction for beauty, the sublime
and the mystery. Art does not stop at the sign of what it shows, but is therefore a manifestation of the sacred feeling it contains, of a wise interpretation of life through the unexpressed vibrations that become emotions in sound, shape, color, light, matter and poetry. Art is a gateway to a higher consciousness and knowledge of the world. For this we must trace new paths to make the invisible manifest and awaken people's consciences. And cinema is one of our best tools.
"An Enlightened Mind" is, therefore, the common thread that unites Art, Science and Spirituality to show how these three Universal languages ​​can converge to guide each of us on the necessary journey within ourselves, leading us to reach that awareness of Being which is the key to understanding the world and the meaning of our lives, and the way to a truly interconnected, peaceful and ecological society, for a more aware world.
