Director Statement

The short addresses the idea of insecurity and vulnerability in the face of the external and internal judgment process, something that as an artist was easy to have a parallel with my career, but it is not the same thing to be evaluated for my work is not the same as being swimwear and being judged on my appearance. Before writing the script during the research, I was able to listen to the testimony of several models about what it is like to face subjective comments, nonsense, and humiliating jargon said in a friendly tone. It was important because not only could I look at my own insecurities, it helped to have a greater understanding of what these young people face. My objective is to put the audience in the place not only of the observer but of the judge and judge.
