Director Statement

Memory is often underestimated. Our memories make us who we are and affect our actions. If past events could not be remembered, it would be impossible for language, relationships, or personal identity to develop.

And still, even in the 21 century we still don't really know how our memory works. What exactly is happening inside our heads? Why do we forget? Why can't we remember everything? Is this some sort of flaw? Or is this a blessing and our way to survive in the world?

In this short film we barely touched the surface of these questions. Perhaps, answers are beyond our limits. Or perhaps, answers are in front of us and we just keep forgetting them. Doing same mistakes all the time.
