Horse Riders

Horse riders is a story which relies on the human happiness reflected trough three homeless young people. Alec and Muppet are forgotten by the society and pass their days under a neglected bridge. Not having the basic living conditions, there is nothing left but living in an imaginary world of fantasies and looking for their happiness and fulfillment there. When Sarah appears in the whole story, everything turns in a different direction. The fantasy becomes reality which leads toward a bizarre tragic point. THIS is a STORY on how LITTLE do we need to find the HAPPINESS and EVEN LESS to lose it.

Director Statement

Horse Riders is my first full lenght film and my first opportunity to express my philosophical statements and my cinematic signature. I prefer to say that the film is fairy tale for adults that follows all the emotional experiences that one person can gain through his meaningless life. It takes just a second to get your happines and one second more to lose it.At the end of the day , we all are Horse Riders riding on our life path.
