Maider Fernández Iriarte : las letras de Jordi

I use film to get closer to and understand an unknown that I wouldn’t dare approach in any other way.  With my camera as the excuse, I manage to meet people who I wouldn’t otherwise.

Jordi was born 51 years ago with cerebral palsy. He doesn’t consider himself as a handicapped person.Even though he isn’t able to speak, he tries to communicate using his cardboard. That’s the way he talks to me. When he was 21, he felt God talking to him for the first time. However, today, after leaving his parent’s home and moving to a residence, he Doesn't feel God anymore. He is empty by his silence. This film is about the the love of God and the speech a free man.
