Director Statement

The film “INEVITABLE” is a representation of our current society, about how a couple finds each other through emotion in a society where memories is forbidden.
There are Three words I want to explore when making this film, “Self” “Emotion” and “Time.” Most of the people are so certain of who they are, they dress in a certain way, talk in a certain way, create a certain image for themselves and yet still have no idea who they are and what they are cable of, I’m going to shake things up for them. “Inevitable” means certain to happen, and as human, we have witness the same event goes on throughout history, Why is it? You will not find answers you want in this film, but I am sure you will question the “reality” itself once you finish watching. Experience is everything, it is the basic form to understand. what comes with experience is emotion, and that is the basic need in human nature. we live in a society where emotion is promoted as “weakness,”
I want to remind people how “emotion” plays the role in a grand scheme of things.
In order to change, we must be honest with ourselves and drop the mask of our “self” ego, which is an illusion that the society has plant in our head. Once we do that, the inspiration basically is everywhere around you, but first we have to wake up in this system that prevent us from seeking the truth, thats why i want to make this film and bring awareness to this society in anyway possible.
