"My parents embraced my childhood with dozens of oral stories full of magic and teaching for life. Since they left this material world, I immersed myself in the cinematographic world to immortalize their words and that, through productions, they stay alive. "Puka Urpi" is a film inspired by one of these oral histories that, through Killa, explores my childhood memories rooted in country life with activities and beliefs that make it a magical and unique world".
