Director Statement

Hello, my name is Valentina, I wanted to say how thrilled I am just by writing these few words.. I have always felt the need to tell a tale, to make people being amazed, moved, to make the audience happy, inspired, entertained! I just love to tell a story and see that that creation can make someone else intrigued. I have always loved mister M. R. James’ ghost stories and atmospheres, that old, gloomy, classic feeling his stories have, it just screamed to be made into a movie! I hope you will love his work as I do! Thank you,

Valentina Battorti
