IMDB Profile

We are a young production company formed by three directors and producers: Andrea Testa, Luciana Piantanida and Francisco Marquez.
We consider production as a space of creativity that makes the film possible.
We think of each design according to the distinctive features and artistic needs of the project. We look upon our films as a space of artistic intervention in the material and symbolic reality. We believe in movies that can question us, move us and make the cinematographic work a vivid and active experience.
