This scene is filmed at the end of class, when everyone is leaving. The girls leave the room but stay hidden by the door. They listen and film the whole conversation between Jose and his best friend. This time Daniella is more active, she leans into the door and watches carefully at the interaction between the two boys, her eyes flick side to side when one of the two move harsher than expected. Whilst Veronica is much more concerned with how the angles look. Every once in a while one of them would look back to make sure no one saw them.
Jose steals for a living!
The two boys are in the back of the classroom against a corner. More specifically it was Jose cornered by his best friend, his expression was troubled and his pose tense. Meanwhile his friend was standing tall, it seemed more like an interrogation scene in a movie. Every time he would have to repeat a question, he made a move forward- which in turn made Jose step back. Until his back tapped the wall, that seemed to snap him out and respond with rage, taking fierce steps forward.
This scene is made up by the girls finishing up the video they took earlier. At the last seconds Daniella stand as up an writes a few ideas about what may be going on with their classmates. Furthermore, she writes the evidence to back up the assumptions she wrote down as well as a possible motive for his actions. They discuss and cross out a few ideas as well as create some others. They looked relaxed and in their element as they finished each other’s sentences or supported the idea or called out a loophole. They had a very relaxed posture and big smiles that were slightly overpowered by some confusion as the loopholes or the ideas were called out.
They are in the same room as the last scene, only that this time they are with Jose’s friend. They tell him that they are going to ask some questions about what happened in the classroom and his thoughts and opinions on the event. When the interview starts, the boy seemed relaxed, however as he questions became deeper and more specific he hunched over, started rubbing his legs, stuttered, and crossed his arms. He looked around and seemed more cautious than before, his eyes flicked from side to side and he flinched when either one of the girls adjusted the camera or the microphone. He answered questions with precision, “yes Jose’s family is going through rough times- he doesn’t have enough money to buy the cheapest lunch. He always had a tendency to take without permission and to never really give them back. Sure, it’s been getting worse, but it’s nothing too big.”
The next day when the girls arrived to school, they made a beeline to the principal’s office. They both stood proud as they were let in. The headmaster greeted them kindly, a small smile that barely stretched his lips. He was shocked when the girls asked for security camera footage, but as they explained their reasons thoroughly with good arguments and sweet tones the headmaster was swayed on his opinion. He straightened up his posture even further, as to seem more imposing. He looked down at them as he said every condition they had to follow to be able to use the footage. The headmaster also shared information about Jose and his troublesome tendencies. “Well yes he is a good student, but he gets in so much trouble. They can easily be avoided by simply not complying to the urge to take. He has had many reports as of late, its worrying the entire faculty.”
This scene takes place during lunch time, in the same shady spot as the last time. The girls and Jose’s best friend sat down, they formed a closed hemisphere, their backs hunched over to get the best view out the small cellphone screen Veronica held. On the right side sat Daniella, followed by Veronica and ended by the boy. They all had their undivided attention on the screen, they watched as Jose picked at almost every single pencil case. He had keys to doors that not even the teachers had. When people walked and bumped into him watches disappeared.
