Project

I hope that my stay at Faberllull Olot will serve to develop the first version of the script for the film Festina Lente. A story about caring for functional diversity and illness between two siblings. Of dependency, sacrifice and guilt. This script, which I developed together with the screenwriter Nuria Dunjó, is currently in the treatment phase. We will dedicate our stay to transform it into a script, beginning to see the scenes drawn and discover how the characters dialogue with each other. In addition to being able to count on the advice and support of professionals who can help improve and finalize the project.
