Silences of a gesture


Capturing a moment, a gesture that inevitably the time will erase. I live my days in longing grabbed the camera to capture certain moments of my children who are not to be repeated. My daughter continues to grow and transform, unless I can capture a moment and eternalize it in my memory. A gesture is enough to satiate my hunger for the infinite.

Director's note

I have a strong desire to keep some of the unique moments of the life of my children. But this is simply not possible through image registration, sounds. What remains is always something else: Or I retain in the infinite pleasure saved in my memory or I entertain myself to recreate other moments...
