Director Statement

"Innocents" is a suspense/drama shortfilm that aims to pose a question to the viewer. Is it necessary to destroy an entire system that acts on the community in isolated cases or is it preferable to keep silence and maintain the structure that benefits society? In the words of Abel's character: "because a light goes out, should everything be dark?

The characters struggle to find the truth and stand firm in their beliefs, but in the end, all this is irrelevant when there is such a powerful system that is capable of influencing even the strongest.
