Director Statement

Making documentaries is to be related. Observe to raise. Research to know. Do to communicate. View to feel.
The documentary filmmaker and his team are a channel to express realities, relationships, emotions, difficulties and experiences. The documentaries features composed stories and introduced into the life of its protagonists, select and points images and sounds, looks and plays transforms when exposed feeds and share their concerns and proposals.
Along the way the documentary film directors like Wenders, Herzog, Oppenheimer, Guzman, Kapadia, Burnat are fellow wanderings in the task of pursuing insist, repeat, change and leave traces that are part of our works.
In Latin America, the documentary film is facing a huge virgin market, since only 30% of its inhabitants are related to this new language and their response to it is very favourable.
In turn, Latin American documentary cinema has gained worldwide prominence, enriching it with the identity of their stories and the front and visceral way to tell them. It is that those who inhabit this continent, we know it in depth and we capture in frames their time and experiences features.
This film that transcends build its borders, traveling to better meet its protagonists and architects, to move his audience. You are about to question people, systems, societies and its laws.
Each work sensitizes and confronts the feared. Every smile, every tear, every act, every gesture that reproduces, spreads, confronts and is embodied in the audience and the filmmakers. Each project is a voice whose echo persist over time.
As a film director in Paraguay, I am convinced that the documentary film is strong when it involves social and political issues. I think that is the way more sense to be part of those stories that will truly change one.
