Lumières dans l'obscurité

TOWARDS A SUPPORTIVE CINEMA

Producer - Director - Scriptwriter - Editor 

"My movies come from my scripts, my scripts emerge from my inspiration, my inspiration thrives from my dreams, my dreams feed on my hopes, my hopes arise from my doubts, my doubts hide my fear, my fear increases my courage, my courage develop my happiness, my happiness goes together with my Ikigai, my Ikigai guides my experience, my experience builds my Life.  

The topics I write about are based on true stories such as family, teenagehood and its hardships, childhood, education, women and children rights, homeless, the future of our society, new technologies, the environment, climate change, animals,  Africa, Spain under Franco’s regime, sports, fashion etc …

The art of cinema is one of the best means to help build tomorrow’s society, as it is both a recreational means and also an impacting one." SVR
