Global Docs

«Non-fiction cinema is infinite, just as the reality it interprets is infinite. Stories and characters that do not leave us indifferent because they deserve to be told, portrayed, and because they have a lot to tell us. Big and small things are always happening in the global village, all equally exciting, intriguing and unpredictable. They also happen at the same time, since the speed at which this village moves is overwhelming.

Brenda Medel I love watching, talking, writing and dreaming about movies. My favorite series is called The Twilight Zone. I am always singing. I never stop thinking about food and I don’t even take my sunglasses off to sleep.
