How Luna Mesa was made

Luna Mesa was shot in Cambodia, Thailand, Rwanda, Tanzania, Mexico, Sierra Leone, and the U.S. Improvisation and create as you go was the rule. The script mainly consisted of drawings, word games, collages, paintings, and cryptic scribbles compiled in a series of six notebooks. Only the dialogue scenes were scripted tightly. They were the last things to be shot.

"I traveled
Ideas were collected
Notions became photographs that transformed into feelings
Random word games gave birth to dialogue
Drawings reminded me of what I could not film
The story took shape and it began to dictate what it wanted
Words were written to satisfy its needs
The story told me where to go"
