We are deeply thankful to the 150 plus people who already made their donation. Having reached our first goal, we are now initiating a second one that will enable us to:

  1. Spread the short-film and send it to the best international film festivals!

  2. Record the soundtrack with first-class musicians.

  3. Get a quality color correction done.

  4. Get the sound mastered in a professional studio.

Thank you all, we are closer to make something great!


Mai oblidis que t'estimo (Never forget I love you) is a story on how music enables Alzheimer patients to retrieve memories that seemed long forgotten. Due to the visit of her grandsons, an old woman ends up re-living one of the most important moments in her life: memories of a difficult childhood amidst the spanish civil war and memories of a father who once loved her more than anything.

Unfortunately, we have experienced Alzheimer closely and with this short film we want to put the focus in this cruel desease that affects 46 milion people worldwide, including our grandmother.

From the "Per Nadal jo menjo lluç" (for Christmas I eat lluç) shirt or a pack of locally brewed beer to unique experiences like a trydive at Costa Brava, a dinner for two on the doorstep of Montseny or an entry ticket to the premiere of this short-film in Cardedeu’s cinema.

Who are we?

‘Mai Oblidis Que T’estimo’ will be our 11th project but this year we want to go beyond the video domain and make a short-film. In order to accomplish this we have teamed up with an amazing team:

FAQ

  • Will the short-film be available on Youtube?

    No, the people who want to watch the short film can purchase tickets to the premiere at the Cinema in Cardedeu (end of december), or purchase a temporary watch link.

    It is our desire to have the short film touring film festivals, and having it publicly online would make this impossible.

Do you have any other queries or questions?
