Director Statement

The director intentionally made KUKOYI movie in black-and-white pictures and with no post-production colour correction/treatment because, after initially seeing the graded coloured pictures, it looked too "beautiful and distracting" for the story, and he wanted the pictures to look much closer to reality.
Also, he presented the pictures in an unconventional "odd box" dimension so as to further create an unusual "peek into life" viewing experience.
