film director

“In this documentary I have followed in Herzog’s footsteps, traveling the same path 45 years later, trying to reflect on his cinema and the sense of creation, looking to the past, and through my own experience in the present. During the journey, I reflect on the loneliness of cinema and the need for creation, on the projects that remain along the way, on the frustration of rejection, on the euphoria when one creates a powerful image in the mind of another human being. I like to say that this documentary is a cinematographic letter addressed to one of the best soldiers, as he defines us, in the history of cinema. A journey from the past to the present while trying to find my own voice as a filmmaker.”
