Director Statement

In this work I tried to show the constant dialogue between the people passing by the street art such as graffiti, and what can happen if you stop to give them the intention they seek. it might change your whole perspective about yourself or your life. In this story the main character -sofia is led by the graffiti, she reacts to them by taking pictures of the graffiti art on streets walls she noticed and feel that there are messages in them for her,that invites her to think about her longing for love and for soul mate.
this film is trying to show that sometimes true love can be missed because of those street walls, that both of the artist, online poet the graffiti artist that writes poetry on the street's walls and sofia as the photographer that captures it on those same walls. they seems so near but actually can't find each other because those walls are like an urban maze.
