In this project I am the pretext, the unifying thread. It’s not a documentary about me but about what could be anyone’s approach to an issue such as veganism. For this purpose, I show my personal experience to introduce the viewer to the complex relationship between humans and animals.
Doubts are agents of change and I need to question everything constantly. I believe that if the world asked itself more questions, this would be a better place.
I consider diversity of opinions is a great wealth for our society. Thus, through Empathy I want to contribute to this diversity: shaking awareness and providing points of view that make people reconsider their habits.
I could not bear to live reality without it being filtered by a sense of humor or being fragmented into audiovisual stories which to put background music to.
Although my relationship with the animal world has been limited to occasionally petting a dog I run into in the street and the endless struggles against mosquitoes on summer evenings, I consider myself an advocate of nature… One of this people who believe that human beings are one more animal species and that neither language nor the spiritual or creative capacities of man make us superior to other animals.
However, I don’t mind eating them. At least I didn’t mind before embarking on this project…
