Director Statement

According to my previous knowledge, our lives all start in a box. Some people’s boxes are oases, and some people’s boxes are dungeons. In any case, there is us, our past and present in the box, simple and clear. We are used to this box, there is no unknown, no risk in it.
But one day, we will be thrown out of the box, like stray dogs, then someone will tell you, "Welcome to your life." Because life is more than the box, there is also the future we have to consider.
Then we can also see our future outside the box. There are great waves, there are rain and sunlight, there is the fire burning in the sky, there is dust rushing in, mixed with flowers and the breath of spring.
We look up at the peaceful sky and worry about the weather, but the only thing that we can foresee is that the rain will not necessarily come, and the fireworks will be the same.
I hope we all have the courage to sit outside the box, look at the sky, wait for the next second, and then give it a warm hug.
