Director Statement

While the description of our film may feel like a sci-fi from the future, the reality is that this dystopian world could become a reality in just one or two days. In a world where discrimination and bigotry are still very much present, we must confront the possibility of this dark future becoming our reality.

As human beings, we cannot stop the way of nature, which inevitably brings about change. However, this change can also lead to insecurity and fear, which I believe is the root cause of discrimination.

"Outsider" is a story of change. How change can make us uncomfortable and uncertain, but it also shows us that there is a way forward towards positive change. It is my hope that this film will serve as a catalyst for positive change in our world, reminding us that we all have a role to play in creating a more equitable society and a better future for us & our future generations.

Thank you for joining us on this journey, and I hope that "Outsider" inspires you to be a part of the positive change that we need in this world.
