Director Statement

I chose to tell this story because I wanted to delve into my past and better understand my relationship with my younger brother Kevin, who is dyslexic. This story became a reality after long conversations between him and I, and the process served as a personal meditation about my attitudes as an older brother and human being both in the past and the present. Kevin helped me in the writing process by recounting his childhood experiences as a dyslexic kid in a very square and formal world and our own fraternal dynamics from his point of view. From these accounts and memories, we built the characters of Pedro, Lucas and Helena, and the plot through which they travel.
