    The idea behind the project was to create an audiovisual map of nationalism in Europe. It doesn’t seem like a near future, but the current situation in Catalonia (as of 2018) raises a necessary question: Is this an isolated case or is the Union only witnessing the birth of the first cracks? The reality is that most European countries deal with the desire for self-determination of one or more of their regions; and the economic crisis, the increase of immigration and, above all, media attention in this regard, has translated into growing support for nationalist parties and movements and has revived old enmities. Almost all the States of the continent are home to one or several regionalist movements that over time can rearrange the geopolitical space. The documentary wants to echo voices normally inaudible in the media that may have much to say in the future of Europe. The Spanish example has already shown that trying to silence them is not the solution.

    Barcroft Media was looking for the cameraman in the Czech Republic to shoot visual material and conduct interviews with people that keep pets that are generally considered wild and dangerous. Since it was my first time shooting with "wild" animals, it was challenging, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Looking forward for further projects!
