Director Statement

Why a “tour” video as a documentary?
To address the “un-addressed” needs of literally hundreds and millions of people who are limited in their ability to travel, due to age, health or political/social situations.

Aren’t there plenty of tour videos for them—mostly on TVs?
Well, they rather can remind you of how deprived you are—either of health, money, or opportunities; if not robbing you of your precious time showing people walking and talking for 30 minutes with just “30 seconds” of “Wow!” moments.

THERE ARE PLACES ON EARTH HIDDEN FROM THE VIEWS OF THE RICH AND THE POOR, THE HEALTHY AND THE INFIRM. Some might call them, “Views once reserved only for the gods.”

Modern technology—especially the drones controlled by satellites and computer chips—has opened up a “window” to such views. (No, I’m not talking about the countless boring or dizzy online drone videos.)

The world can’t have enough of thrilling and compelling dramas and documentaries. But I believe that there are so little of films reassuring and comforting that remind you that you are on equal ground to everybody else.
