«When you work on an important project like mine, with a strong international resonance, you are lucky, because it can help you promote an independent film in which you have participated, and its distribution.

Are you afraid of the idea that people see Wanda as a role model?
“Wanda makes many mistakes, unlike the role models to follow, to be an example you have to have a strong dose of altruism, not selfish intentions to deal with. Models terrify me a little, their perfection, wanting to please others, I love her vulnerability, her strength, the fact that people can see themselves in what they have been through, their difficulties, their loss, their anxiety, what great emotions represent “.

Did you choose Wanda’s look?
«I helped to conceive some of them, when we know her she has a well-defined look and make-up, but after all she has been through, the situations she has experienced and which have transformed her, that changes too. In this film we will certainly see her with different make-up and hair, something more natural, less constructed that makes us understand the character’s experience ».
