We believe that reality, today more than ever, goes beyond fiction and that is why our true passion is focused in the documentary world. Although we make all kinds of documentaries, our vocation is focused in the creative documentary, which is a genre that respecting the truth, allows us to explore a different way of storytelling, sometimes one which is close to fiction, making us go deeper into our subjects, covering them with more emotions.
