Director Statement

It is a story about the essence of the experiment of schools and its history, where the main characters of the film are not architects, nor composers, but ideas that appear in this experimental environment.
As an architect who also interested in merged fields of arts I was curious in ongoing permanent conflict of these two Fields , the challenge is to show the impact of these experiments on evolution of the school and on the students and teachers.
As a theme is very specific I wanted to create a simple flow of music and visuals, as poetic as possible, with its own humour of the bits of the story.
It’s the showcase of what the school’s fusion can possibly bring or what discussions it evokes, where they all start, and where they have a practical meaning.
