Your film is structured on an experimental stylistic choice, completely revolutionary.
Whenever you think of a story, there are a thousand ways to stage it. Why did you choose not to transform the story into a visual form but, rather, lyrical?
Your film is a film full of hope and delicacy. Do you think that cinema can influence people to the point of helping them? Is this how your passion for cinema was born?
I totally agree that cinema, like all other forms of art, can help a person like music help me enormously in my life to be able to get by. Each artist has a true heart and fills with love and beautiful messages. My passion was born because when I was little I couldn’t hear and I didn’t speak and the only thing I did was write stories all day long and today this writing has become my strength.
