Their views

Asked in an interview [ 2 ] about his double work as writer and director, he replied:

“The screenplay is a write in transit, because there the movie until it is not finished.” When you work for a foreign film, one is a contributor. But sometimes, when in full shooting script itself, you end up without knowing it and modifying it at any time. When that happens it is like a schizophrenic task and you end up saying “Who was the idiot who wrote this?”.

In the same interview he explained the unemployment situation was one of the things that led him to write the screenplay for blind cock and two years later, to begin filming, that situation had not changed. He added that the protagonist of the film is a normal boy coming out of high school, with serious problems and isn’t content by society. This young man has to live with his grandmother in a precarious position by has an absent parent is an economic exile. If it could soon be divorced, parents problem at the time of the film the thing is more complicated, because there was an emigration abroad which determines many families desmembramientos.
