Director's note

Screener is the result of a long – and necessary – process of maturation over porno images. The images I had would always be scattered fragments of an eventual conceptual exercise, that is, a thinking form imbued with responsibility. Whatever film appeared from these images, it would always be a film not about what you see, but about what it is possible to think based on what you see.
