Screenwriter and film director“I felt the need to deepen professionally in my faith, in my experience of personal spirituality and to do something useful. And maybe to also place my work in the service of productions, or film series, that reflect this idea.”

"It's a bit mischievous with some humor mixed in, it's aimed particularly at young people and it ends up being not only a tribute to these people that make the program but to the thousands and thousands of volunteers who selflessly work for Radio Maria.”
