Supervisor: André Badalo and Isidro Santos, my Course Leader and Class Director respectively.DIRECTOR'S NOTE:Just like my previous work, my films often involve themes that can be considered some sort of taboo. The first film I directed (and produced, edited and wrote) was more tame: it involved the forbidden relationship between a bandit and a police officer in a town whee corruption and mercenaries have the upper hand. Then, two years later, It Was God was born, the tale of Eva, a religious person, and her encounter with the personification of sin. And now, in 2020, Tell Me You Love Me comes to life as a better version of all my previous work. It Was God solemnly exists to see my progress as a film-maker and all the mistakes that happened during production were taken in careful consideration and given special attention so that Tell Me You Love Me could be my best work so far. I'm incredibly proud of this film and the message it transmits, and I am so happy that the people who have watched my work of art either praise it as a fantastic film, or give constructive criticism to help me grow. For that, I will forever be thankful. - Ana Rosa, Director, Writer and Producer.TELL ME YOU LOVE ME (original name "Diz Que Me Amas"), with Inês Guedes and Rui André Silva, 2020.
