"The decision to make this film was inspired by something almost comical, in any case sudden and intense, after I got to know Christina Zoniou's work in theater and also heard about a gesture of civil disobedience by the pope's almoner, who switched back on the electricity in a building occupied by 180 indigent families. The slogan you could use to publicize Spin Time is 'the poor as you've never seen them before.' It's the world of the invisible, who don't play the victims here; instead, they make an admirable attempt, often doomed to failure, to live with dignity, as a political subject able to express its own culture."
