INTENTION

Why I made this movie?

"I find stuttering very cinematic. When you can't express yourself in words, only the image remains...Yet it is a subject very little treated in the cinema. ​ That's why I decided to make this short film based on real events and my experiences as a stutter. The freedom of expression is also a theme dear to my heart who advocates tolerance, listening to others, respect and dignity. The goal of the film  "Between The Words" is to make the voice carry

to all those who can't take it..."
