Director Statement

"For each of us, art was a way of channeling pain and, surely, it must also happen to you that you suffer, when you are marginalized, when the police persecute you, and perhaps some of you will also find a way to express yourself in the arts. " (meeting between children of the disappeared and people living on the street)
