"The relationship with our childhood and the time that passes. The ability to live with the belief systems of another, and the tenderness of that pact. To plastically idealize the film and give it this air of a 50s film but with a more "realistic" vibe, almost documentary-like, in a double movement: on the one hand, the everyday elements are those that enable the fantasy, and then the appearance of the fantastical element works as a catalyst to allow us to pay attention to those emotions that disappear if you look directly at them. I seek to build a personal story with a more universal resonance." [Iván Fund]
