Your childhood shall never die is about a group of people and their complicated relationships to one another. Vera is trying to figure out how to relate to her sons irresponsible father, while her sister is about to release a book about their shared childhood. Not far from Vera, a professional clown is hesitantly trying to get on with his life and form a new relationship, but his ex is refusing to let go of him.
In close shots, full of emotions, the characters expose the best as well as the worst in them, and the film provides no simple answers to its questions.

I was additional editor in this film.
This is a story about Ricardo and Dana. Ricardo has been in a wheelchair for the last ten years, suffering from a degenerative disease now in its final stage. He wants to die on the banks of the Ganges River in India and meet Gadhali again. In this journey, he is accompanied by housekeeper Dana. Life owes something to these two lonely beings. The journey will become the alibi for paying it off.
Nightfalls in India is a shining road-movie full of life that uses journey as an excuse to tell a story about love and the passing of time, about the importance of the present and the need to recover lost time; a story in which the journey itself is as important as the arrival.
