Director's Statement

Apart from this being my first experience in joining a film festival, I thought that the concept of telling a whole narrative through only three shots was an interesting challenge. I've always been intrigued by powerful and effective storytelling, and this festival allows me to have just that.

I would say I drew most of the inspiration from my and many other people's experience during the pandemic. I could imagine that everyone on a global scale just had the same problem of monotony, repetition and stagnation. This film was in a way, my expression of those same emotions.

As the title says, I want to encourage everyone to reach out. Oftentimes, people would simply never tell others about their struggles for the fear of being a burden to them. While there are good intentions, this could be a way of setting themselves up for self-destruction. Leaving all these emotions inside and not being able to vent and release these emotions could have people in worse situations.
