Director Statement

I'll be happy if at least a few festivals agree to show my film.
This movie is not super high quality, the spiders were filmed in natural outdoor conditions in the dark with a weak lightning, so I do not think that the quality of the picture determines the film, much more important is the idea itself and the presentation of its content to the audience
