Director Statement

FELINA is the story of two beings who learn to trust each other.
FELINA sends a message about the need to accept your own way of being, the most natural and instinctive side of the human being... About the need to give and accept love, and also about respecting the animal kingdom, to which we belong. Although FELINA tells a dark story at moments, its end cannot be brighter.
