A touching article by journalist Silvia Valerio (It):

Filming processing began in 2015 in my spare while working as an architect in China. It took three years of work and has gone through difficult times like the loss of rendered sequences. After this incident the original length has been reduced by about one minute and finger animation has been simplified.
