Director Statement

There are many reasons that drove us to develop this project and lightened the need to capture this story on the screen:
To make visible issues that don’t respond to a stablished norm is a great incentive; to narrate a reality that a lot of young people live but it is not well known and trying to understand or empathize with this perspective, often marginalized or discriminated; to show a complex process as the gender choice to a young age is; being able to distinguish and separate concepts like gender identity, gender expression, biological sex and sexual election; to put in evidence that despite the progress in terms of earned rights and all the information we have, there is still discrimination of the LGBTIQ collective.
We could count many more issues to discuss about our motivations, but what would gratify us the most is to know that this project can touch the heart of at least one person.
