Director Statement

This film is a satirical commentary on social media and the people addicted to them which, I think, can connect with every person of this generation. The sheer toxicity and hate-spreading of social media platforms are something we all come across yet we seem almost unable to live without these platforms. That's why when my friend and long time collaborator, Saowad, came to me with this script, I felt a very strong connection to the story and figured that this is indeed a story I am gonna tell. The dopamine kick from social media is almost like a vital essence of our survival, metaphorically related to water. The character searches for this 'water' in a jungle like environment as the social media world is like a jungle filled with predators and dark caves. The protagonist wears a blue attire which is referring to a very popular social media platform. I can definitely say that, after watching the film, every viewer will be able to find a personal connect with the story, just like I did.
