⁣Director Statement

After spending my childhood in my dad's glass shop, glass became a familiar material, which represents a refuge, but one of the most fragile I know. My memory is a treasure that, like glass, breaks. The missing parts are just as present as those that are still here. A confused childhood, observed 20 years later, a childhood in constant dissonance between treasure and oblivion.
"The Glazier's Daughter" is an animated short film painted with oil on glass, which makes sense from its materialization: returning to my father's workshop to rediscover those forgotten treasures, going through the glass to be able to get closer to them and face my great fear: The passage of time.
