"A thousand hours of conversation, we talk, and in the end there's almost nothing. Maybe one word still stands. This is also how we work. We imagine a scene with Ventura or Vanda or Vitalina, we go for it, we repeat: Vanda talks about her mother, Vitalina about her husband, Ventura about himself. We must start by telling. We resume, a lot must be cut. Condensing, removing. Don't talk about the dog this time, go back to the day when he came to your house... And we get to what we need." Pedro Costa
