Director Statement

Ina is the archetypal representation of the struggling artist. Tryiryng to keep the balance between everyday life and her desire to make art. We meet her at her darkest hour after another setback. Terra in this story is not only Inas friend, but the representation of inspiration and spring.

Like Terra in the story there always has to be someone to inspire and support you to try the impossible. In the end it really comes down to the people who help you live your life and carry you.

Trough-out the story we never leave Inas point-of-view and renounce extravagant camera moves to give the viewer the opportunity to project himself onto Ina, or to take the role of an imaginary companion.

I hope this picture helps people in hard times and shines a light for those in creative crisis to never stop dreaming.
