Watch the Audience FEEDBACK Video:
The Night of the Bear, our first documentary film was born from our meeting with the team of emergency accommodation and the tile with its users. We got to know this community bound by insecurity and soon we found it necessary to image these very intimate moments, to give a voice to those who are called may be a little hasty “excluded.”
The mirror we tend these men and women is not always easy to confront, yet it is necessary for those who believe in the progress of society thing. The original intention was not to inform the viewer on the phenomenon of insecurity but to touch the depths of his heart and stimulate debate.
