Director Statement

It's necessary to see hopeful, curious cinema with a touch of fantasy, for physical children and also for the child that we all carry inside. I started dreaming about this short film in 2016, since then it has transmuted into notes and sketches. Its final form, promises to be full of love. A story that seeks to be a game in order to forget the daily war we live as latinamericans. It's a bridge in a encounter between opposites, exemplifying how courage arises from fear, how the strength to smile sometimes comes from sadness, kindness from cruelty, and the will to live from death itself.
