The initial 12 scripts were made by immigrant from Lavapiés neighborhood in Madrid. The following 4 by inhabitants of four little villages in Leon, affected by depopulation.

Project decalogue:

• The film has not a director but many, and its script is written collectively.

• There is no racord (film continuity) of locations, light, clothing, language or actors.

• The process of the film is as important as the film itself.

• The film participants are co-authors, the authorship is collective.

• The format is not important, the contents matters. Each person may choose the format to shoot, film, video, mobile phone, webcam format…

• No one shoots more than one shot.

• Performance style is totally free.

• The role of the editor is NOT the usual way, should joint the shots and generate a film with an appropriate rhythm so as to be legible.

• The text can be performed in any language.

• The premiere of the film will take place with none of the participants knowing the film. It will be subtitled in Arab, Portuguese and Spanish.

• The Project is “Creative Commons”.
