He arrived in Paris invited to give a conference about human rights and in the journey that leads from the airport to the event hall, reconstructs moment to moment, the love story he lived when he was young with the beautiful Maria Teresa, a young Paraguayan, political refugee who escaped from her country to save herself from the criminal repression of the dictatorship of the bloodthirsty general Alfredo Stroessner. In Paraguay, Maria Teresa was a member of a university student political group, opposed to the dictatorship, whose leader was her boyfriend Ramon. One night, when they were involved in a clandestine activity, they were detained by the regime's military police and locked in a prison.

Director Statement

Two autumns in Paris (Dos Otoños in Paris), contains a hard and intense story that needed a dose of visual magic in its realization. So we narrated the movie in a poetic way to describe the hostile world that it poses, constructing atmospheres in long shot that allowed to catch the gaze of the spectator. The image was created contemplating the beauty of the woman in her doing, immersed in a world ruled by perversity but dominated by love. It is she, Maria Teresa, a political refugee, who moves the story at will, and made us follow her to Paris and live intensely her struggle and passion. At the time of directing this film, I was inspired by romantic classics French films, such as “Betty Blue”, “Vivre Sa Vie”, among others. Also I was inspired by my expirience in life, in today, taking into account the meaning of women in a society that still questions their desire for independence.
