Nota da Realizadora Director’s Statement

In april 13, 2011 Latifa Kassir was murdered by her husband. Her body was discovered by her 2 children. Jana, 9 years old, and Khalil 6 years old after coming home from school. For me, this story has always haunted my life, especially that Latifa was my aunt. I’ve seen her children grow up, and I lived with them. After the murder, Khalil kept asking about a fish he left in that house, always wondering whether it might still be alive if he returned. In the funeral, Khalil didn’t cry, neither did Jana; and this drew my attention. I wondered what all of this actually meant for them. Knowing that, I felt that a scenario should be written about this story. And since there are numerous films, movies, and documentaries showing the lives of oppressed women, I felt like it’s time to show the life of Khalil, the child who had to live such a reality. As a result, “Khalil” a fiction scenario, adapted from a true story, about this child and his fish.
