There are images that one does not forget, that stay in one's mind. The first time I attended hearings in a Juvenile Court, the faces of the minors (the accused adolescents) remained in my mind for days. When I decided to make Juízo and faced the legal constraints of disclosing the minors' identity, I was imposed a challenge: How to make a film without showing those faces? My solution was to replace the real minors with other youngsters who have lived in similar circumstances of social marginalization and violence and who could very easily be in the same situation themselves. These youngsters share the same conflict and agony with the minors they are depicting. They do not «act», they are themselves: Their individual personalities are fundamental in the film.
