DIRECTOR’S FILM STATEMENT

Searching for Treasure is a short film about finding new worlds, discovering new points of view, and the hope that comes from learning new things.

I came up with this idea when I was walking along the beach with my husband and I found a bottle on the shore. It was empty, there was no map inside, but that emptiness filled my mind with ideas.

With this film I want to show the audience that everything around us can teach and show us a completely new world that we often ignore.

DIRECTOR’S FILM STATEMENT

Momento (translated as Moment in English) is a short film involving different supernatural moments in different scenarios. The short film portrays the idea that reality is not always what we as humans perceive it to be. Sometimes, these strange realities or fantasies find a way into our lives, even if only for a moment.

They challenge our everyday beliefs and perceptions of the known and unknown world around us. Within this collection, five moments are depicted.

Since this project was a series of stories, the idea was to have more than one director of photography in order for each to deeply focus on one or two moments. That way, we could achieve a distinct look for each story. Within the color scheme, we attempted to create a different atmosphere using either green, blue, or red for the different stories.

Each location was extremely unique, at historical and restricted locations around Rosario. The choice of these locations was not random. I considered their architecture and setting, and thought how this aesthetic would work with what I had in mind for my story. We wanted to take advantage of these locations and harness their aged beauty.

Through Momento I want to show reality, which I believe is far more complex than we think. Perhaps, what we need to know to finish understanding reality is as brief but as important as a moment. That was part of the inspiration behind creating these moments. In other words, I hope to show what is not seen.

What also drove me to create Momento was the relationship that the supernatural can have with reality. Although I am telling a fantasy story, involving spiritual entities, I am shedding light on the unknown in all of our lives. This is showing the other side. Sometimes the other side is dark and scary, since it is a mystery to us. I believe this allows these supernatural stories to apply to our everyday lives.

DIRECTOR’S FILM STATEMENT

Retrato Imaginario (translated in English as Imaginary Portrait) combines fantasy, drama, terror and suspense to tell the story of Valeria, a young artist played by Argentine actress Cecilia Li Causi. Valeria suffers from a mental imbalance and through the creation of a family portrait connects with her deceased mother in order to free herself from her deranged father, played by Julio Chianetta, and her abusive grandfather, played by Mirko Buchin. Valeria is subjected to psychological torment by these two men: her grandfather frequently sexually harasses her, and her father blames her for the death of her mother during childbirth.

The main story of Imaginary Portrait centers on Valeria honoring the anniversary of her mother’s death by creating a family portrait. This work represents the tangible objective of the character and connects with one of the main themes of the film: the power of art to change our lives. Valeria’s emotional journey is driven by her need to break free from her father and grandfather, with the help of her late mother. This is what Valeria needs, not what she wants as a character. She is ready to fight for her freedom.

This story is a social statement that involves gender issues, exhibiting the oppression of women by the patriarchal system. For the script, I was largely inspired by the “Me Too” movement in the United States and “Ni Una menos” in Argentina. Valeria’s mother represents freedom and the past generation of women. Valeria represents the woman of today, power. As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, I consider the struggle of women’s groups against the injustices of male chauvinism as extremely important and valuable.

Throughout the film, viewers will find common color schemes that symbolize the characters and their emotions. The application and use of each color scheme involved the coordinated work of the photography team, the art team, the costume designer and the direction. In addition to this, both the cinematographer and I agreed to play with the depth of field. Since the interior of the chosen location is filled with doors, it has the appearance of a maze. We were interested in taking advantage of this depth to give the audience the experience of a variety of layers, which are not only connected to the physical place, but also to the mental state of the protagonist.

The creative process for this movie was very rewarding. In principle, when working with a cast and crew made up of professionals from Rosario, I was very proud of the level of technical and creative skill on and off set. Really, in terms of filmmaking, there is nothing to envy from other parts of the world.

Another element that gave me great satisfaction was the fact that I was able to use my grandparents’ apartment as the film set. Located in one of the oldest buildings in Rosario, the apartment is on the corner of Laprida and Córdoba, right in front of “La Bola de Nieve”, an emblematic building in my hometown. My grandfather was a collector of paintings, and the walls of his house are not only full of them, but they also carry out original and unique artistic interventions, made by master artists. Given, then, that the story of Imaginary Portrait is related to art and with the power that it has to change our lives, this location was a perfect fit.

Finally, the biggest reward was seeing the end result: every element, the hard work that the team put in, the attention we paid to each detail – all of this paid off and was embodied in a beautiful work of art.
