In “Forgotten Roads,” I wanted to talk about personal freedom. The difficult decision to know yourself, to explore, and to learn how to leave the fear, the insecurity, and the social standards that not allow us to be what we want to be. I wanted to present this journey with a woman of 70 years old, who lives in a little town and has to be brave to leave all the social roles that she had during her life, like to be woman, mother, senior and widow.
I wanted to show the self-knowledge and the necessity to rediscover our own truth. I tried to revive the individual possibility to choose, clarifying that the age is not an impediment and that freedom is a meeting with ourselves in loneliness.
