Director’s notes

There are objects that get forgotten, abandoned, and from which we are unable to part because we feel that sooner or later they could become useful again. Sometimes we simply don’t have the courage to throw them or give them away because we don’t want to part from the memories that they represent.
It is from this reflection that ‘Patience of Things’ was developed, interlacing the story of a family with the connection we build with the objects that are part of our lives.
