Director Statement

Although I never thought I would make a documentary, I felt disconnected from real life at one point. Night Termite was born as I tried to reconnect, especially with my grandfather, who is the main character in the film. However, my aim was to hide myself behind the camera and let the story unfold as naturally as possible.
