Director Statement

Adapting such a famous series of book as Perdida was an amazing and huge challenge. Our angle to deal with it was to bring more of the Jane Austen element to the adaptation, in the present and in the past.  With minor adjustments in the story, validated and created with the book’s author, we were able to create and adventure, full of romance and time-travel elements.  Moreover, the cast process was also very key to it, having Giovanna Grigio attached to the project was a major win.
