Jonás is blinded after a car accident. While he tries to be remunerated, he reluctantly adjusts to his new condition and to being vulnerable around his wife and daughters. Finding that there are more important things than money.

“We had this need to talk about vulnerability, fragility. To explore what happens. That is why he is a male character; that masculinity was very important. Why can’t we break down? What if something does break you? How do you return from it?” the director explained.

The director of Cinco Días sin Nora (2008) and Paraíso (2013), said that although the story explores blindness, it’s only used as a condition that helps the character to discover himself.

In this regard, the producer, screenwriter and actor Ari Brickman, said that they decided to present Jonás as a pleasant and empathetic character to counterbalance his resistance to being vulnerable: “It was very dangerous that he was so tough, so neurotic and cold with his daughters, and I think a balance was achieved because although it is difficult for him to deal with his feelings, he is a guy that we can learn to love because we see good intentions.”

Todo lo invisible, starring Ari Brickman, José María de Tavira, Bárbara Mori and Daniela Schmidt, is part of the official Mexican feature film section of the 18th edition of FICM.
