Director Statement

The film Freedom is an attempt to present undesirable and problematic phenomena in today's living in a small town, between characters who want the place to be better for living, but are not ready to do something about it. They are slaves to their own decisions, trying to reach for their own elusive freedom. A harsh look in the mirror. The film was shot in one location, simulating a long continuous shot.
