About the Production:

“As we got the children, time disappears. I saw myself like living in a
maschine that put me in the differents obigations and satisfied every
needs. Everything that’s natural i.e. the growth of plants, the sprout
of love or anger are technically defined and retrieved through complex
processes. But I wasn’t choosing all I wanted rested apart. I turned in a slave of my own life. This tranported to all the people motivated my story…the though was we
are all the same (cloning), the vegetable becomes all the same (GMO).
We’re all a part of this industrial process call society.” — Alejandra Tomei
