SEE THE WORLD THROUGH MY EYES tells about a journey not in space, but in time. While circumstances stay unaffected it is the person itself that changes.
The journey begins at a desolate place where we seem to be completely surrounded by walls and buildings. Our view is fixated while we're listing to a narrator telling us about his experiences. The passage of time is only marked by changes in the sky and a train that can be seen for some seconds.
When the camera makes a complete turn we know this is a metaphorical movement as the narrator has advised us before to try a change in perspective. While we're turning the sight lightens up for us.
Our journey ends where it begun. As if we had been flying we slowly touch down again. Our mood seems to be eased.

Fortunately, all of them used great cinematography that would give their pictures a special look. So, one day I took my smartphone cam and tried for myself to open up the world around me by making short films ...
I shot SEE THE WORLD THROUGH MY EYES as part of my IDEAL WORLD PROJECT showing ways of mental change in current times...
