Director's Statement

Opal is a dark fairy tale set in the afro-caribbean culture. It's a journey through the Caribbean languages and accents, their food, their colors, their folklore, their dreams, and their trials, all with a strong vibe of fantasy.
It also is a journey deep inside the mind and the traumas of an incest survivor struggling for healing and for defeating her inner demons. I wanted to show what a child is going through and how bad incest destroys her entire life.
The film will speak differently to adults and children. Adults will understand the real consequences of the crime of incest and children will learn how to identify this crime, as they often dont know for sure what is happening.
It's also a film to give hope and courage to any victim of incest and show them that, whatever the struggle, the light is never completely gone.
