EMPATHY is a new project by the Foundation for the Adoption, Sponsorship and Defense of Animals (FAADA) and director Ed Antoja, who once again places himself in the center of a film, this time to tell his particular take on animal suffering through a combination of fiction, advertisement and documentary styles.
A film that begins with a part ironic, part cynical tone that makes the viewers identify themselves with the main character, who faces the issue from a position of ignorance and skepticism, but who gradually becomes more serious and educated about the subject matter as the documentary progresses.
The project is developed from three different perspectives:
- Firstly, from all the footage that Ed has been commissioned to produce for the documentary.
- Secondly, from Ed’s relationship with the project and its subject matter.
- Finally, from the director’s style of filmmaking.
