Director’s statement
Camillo Teti: “We have chosen a mixed techniques with 2D and 3D centring our interest on the story, the characters and the unusual locations”.
Victor Rambaldi: “In the film we can find universal themes such as friendship, the defence of our planet and the race to space seen as the desire to communicate with being who are different from us. All these themes are very appealing, above all for children”.
