“Being and becoming is a key that permits exiting a social system built on fear, a key that allows one to look at life differently for and with our children, and for ourselves as well.
This film, in dazzling ways, has brought answers to my own inner child who has become worn out, like everyone else, for having too long sustained her survival without daring her life.
This film, through the liberating testimony of these pioneer families of “becoming self”, is a hymn to internal necessity.”
