Director Statement

When we started brainstorming about the making of this film, we knew that we wanted to explore the world of myth, and more generally storytelling, and how it underlines the everyday reality. We focused on the myth of the journey, that with his counterposing consequences of hospitality and hostility can be found in nowadays imagery. The news of a local riot in Lesbos against migrants seeking asylum became a starting point. Rather than give an obvious moral lesson, the films tries to depict this current contrast and at the same time merges it with elements of fantasy. The title “Land” encloses both the problem at the core of the story and the stage on which it unfolds.
