Everything starts in the imagination.
Catarina César (or C. S. César) is an independent filmmaker and screenwriter, born in a very small village in the South of Portugal.
Catarina speaks 3 languages and holds a master degree in Film/TV production. She has been travelling around the world alone and lived in three different countries for years while looking for a place to belong. Today she is still looking for that place. A place to call home.
- Why do you want to be a writer? -
"Being a writer is like freeing an orchestra of words that roll from our soul into the paper. I wanted to be a writer since the day I realized that my stories could change someone else's life.
It started to be a refuge from a boring life in a small village and country, my only opportunity to expel and understand certain feelings that came from loss, bullying, loneliness, sorrow, unfairness, hope and the constant eagerness to escape. In those times, writing was like having a conversation with myself, until I found myself talking with a desperate girl who was at the edge of suicide. On that day, I had nothing to help her but words in writing, and fortunately, that was enough to save her from the darkness. I did lose other friends who were victims of silence, and it is also for them that I write. Hopefully, it will reach them. As for the living, I wish to transport them and give hope, especially for those who feel displaced or come from places with no opportunities to thrive. "
