Director Statement

Describing Zero Hour felt like looking back at my own personal life. Facing strong gender stereotypes from my peers as I was pressured to be dominant and look masculine in society, expected to hide my emotions inside. Never had I thought that this strong expectation had consumed me so much and led me to neglect my own mental health. Fortunately, I was able to escape from that toxic trait; and Zero Hour served as a reminder on what if I didn’t reach my epiphany to heal myself.

While it is a very personal film for me as a reminder to all men, I always believe that the toxic masculinity men faces are a collective problem in society. It is the reason why Zero Hour focuses on the relationship of Rara and Lucky as a couple who must deal with this stigma.

As the film are told through Rara’s perspective, the audience could only put themselves as a witness and keep on guessing what causes Lucky’s tragic death. What’s worse is how Lucky behaves as a “perfect” man instead being truthful to Rara, hopefully delivered the message on how these traits could create misunderstanding and corrupt meaningful relationship.

Zero Hour itself has no answer how to solve this problem since I’m still trying to figure it out as well. However, I intended Zero Hour as a door for an open discussion about this subject matter, where hopefully it could also be a starting point for a call-to-action to demolish gender stereotypes in relationships.
