I participated as an editor in the first stage of editing this doc, although it was eventually edited by Damien Plandolit and Laura Gabay. We did several turn arounds to the footage and to the world too. We began to speak about this project when we were still studying in Cuba. We continued talking after graduating, and in-between that all of a sudden covid 19 Laura finally began to shoot. We worked at distance, and in the same room in Paris. In a place so incredible such as Cité internationale des arts. It's always a pleasure to experiment and discover new ways along Laura. The path of this film continued developing to what it is today: an original piece that explores and remembers Laura's daddy on his exile.
