Errante Producciones
Errante is a company specializing in the documentary genre, dedicated to promoting the development of works that express the stamp of their authors. Its productions have been selected in festivals such as Cannes, Berlinale, IDFA, Hotdocs, among others, and have been distributed nationally and internationally.


Breaking Words explores creative techniques to portray a world in continuous movement and transformation. Painting that expands and dilutes, crossed out words, new concepts, images on cut paper that come together revealing unconscious worlds; they are a bridge to see the internal process of four trans teenagers that end up becoming the work itself.
