A not filmed movie.

Between 2007 and 2008 a group of people were working with enthusiasm and determination to produce a film: The lake of the dragonflies. The argument was the story of a young girl who, after a mysterious incident, stopped talking at the age of 8 and now, when she turns 18, she wants to recover her voice. For this she believes that she must find out the cause that left her speechless.

The project, like so many others, did not come to fruition. The causes do not need to be listed.

Now in 2017, ten years later, rereading the script it occurred to the Director to leave filmed testimony of this failure in a format that we could call "A not filmed movie" which, basically, consists in the partial reading of the illustrated script with visual, graphic material and scenic work, which was used for the preparation of the project.

The pretense is that the spectator, when contemplating the images of this documentary, can imagine that film that was never made.
