A presentation of the creative and production processes behind the animated documentaries Bajo la Almohada (Under the pillow) and Sultana´s Dream. The former film is made in collaboration with a group of children patients of an HIV clinic in Goa. The latter is a collective experience, inspired by Rokeya Hossain’s feminist short story Sultana’s Dream.
