Director Statement

Coming to terms with the idea that people are inevitably alone by choice.
Sometimes the distance they create between them is momentarily bridged.
They resort to means of curing the trauma of loss, experiencing the illusion of proximity.
They meet up with their loved one through intermediators, through screens and networks so close yet so far away.
