 When you lose a part of your 5th Chromosome. And finally your genetic cariotype. So graphic, so simple. Such a small piece that is missing.

Lisa Pram, Author of The 5th Chromosome, Andrea’s mother.


In Spain about 400 people suffer from the “Cri du chat syndrome”, an alteration in chromosome pair number 5 which causes mental retardation and is recognized by a peculiar, high-pitched cry similar to the mewing of a cat. When they knew their daughter’s weird condition, Andrea’s parents started an intensive search lasting more than a year to try to get an answer or diagnosis. Lisa Pram, Andrea’s mother, began to write the “Little Black Book2”, a journal that includes texts, photographs and drawings. Based on the intimate pieces that Lisa writes to her daughter, this work was the first Spanish TV multiscreen documentary production.
