 Cinema for all: Part 2

People are usually motivated by personal experience as a catalyst for universal change. Miguel Ángel Font Bisier admits he is not an agent of change who has personally been affected by any disability either through family members or his social bubble.

No, his defining moment was a result of a meeting with a deaf attendee at a film festival in San Diego 10 years ago. Admittedly, due to budget constraints and not thinking it would be selected for festival content, he had decided to shoot the film more as video art, abundant with visuals, few sound effects and complimenting music.
