Experiencing Interruptions?

Wu Wei

In a world where fear (darkness) is fed to us constantly, we must find the light (love) within us. We must surrender to life completely in order to truly live it. The ‘good’ and the ‘bad’ deep down are all one, because from the darkness comes light and from pain one finds the divine.

The reason I made this documentary was to inspire people to go out there and create without fear of being authentic. Trends limit and box us in, and instead of getting inspired by what others are doing, ask yourself what you want to do and pursue it.
