Synopsis: The middle of the night. Moans are heard behind the parents' door. Two young sisters are asking questions...
Is any of this based on a true story? Where did the idea come from?
It's probably a true story but it didn't happen to me. I know it's happened to many people. I had the idea because I wanted to present two little girls and how they discuss things "adult" but in a child's world.
The two young actresses seem like they are enjoying the acting process. Where did you find them, and what was the casting process?
These are little girls I have known for many years and so I wrote the film with them in mind. They have two different characters and you can see it on the screen.
This film has played in over 100 film festivals in the last 12 months, winning over 30 awards. What do you put that success down to?
We have over 160 selections in festivals in the world today. This is an incredible success that I would not have imagined. I think this is a subject that everyone knows but which has never been shown. This is also thanks to the acting of the small actresses, I think. It was not won before shooting.
What do we gain from looking at adult issues through the eyes of a child?
I think it helps to put things into perspective. The obvious things are very far from us and the kids are at that height. And it also allows you to see the comic interpretation of the children.
What advice would you offer to someone who is about to make their first short film?
I would say that today we have the technical means to make films for very little money with professional quality. So you have to make movies, show them, over and over again and see if we have the talent. No more excuses for not making movies. The proof is Dad In Mum.
