Director Statement

In a moment when our perception and relationship with nature, reality and machines are dangerously getting compromised and redefined by the unstoppable influence of technology, I propose to return and explore the power of raw and direct audiovisual encounters between a camera a its surroundings. I see this as an imperative contemporary experiment to get back to basics and provoke the recovery of our intrinsic need of time and space for reflection about our present and concepts like time, nature, evolution, speed and decay.
