What’s behind the untold?
Feelings. Beliefs. Fears. Dreams. Promises. Secrets. Plans. Opinions. Ideas. Realities.
The list goes on and on but the essence of all untold stories is one: the truth, or at least the impression of it. Just like the lie, the unsaid hides the truth. We do not reveal the truth about who we really are or what we truly think to protect ourselves and others from hurt, damage or judgment.
This year, Cabriolet Film Festival provides a platform where UNTOLD stories are cited or unveiled and where people are free to illustrate their silence or raise their voice.
