Director Statement

To me, filmmaking is about telling stories but also denouncing reality. Life is too good on it's own with it's imperfections, controversies, cultural values and differences, shocking real life events that not even the greatest story tellers could think about. I like transgression, uncomfortable feelings, questions, the street culture, raw images, hard contents that can make you want to get up your seat and leave, or stay and change that part of you who felt emotionally unstable in front of a visual content. I also like fantasies, and the contrast they can have within reality, symbolism and unconscious information.
