When speaking about the film, Campos-Pons revealed that the idea came to her in a dream. She had this to say about the making and conceiving of the video:
“I feel myself as a conduit from one energy to another energy, that I was out in the middle to to pass this information and to make sure that this littered a homage. A gathering of feelings, emotions, ideas and desires and power from very ancestral time to the present took place and I feel that very deeply. There was an ancestral gift put into place for something that couldn’t wait any longer to be made.”
