Film is a very powerful medium and in turn empowering. In film the potential lies latent for a new reality to exist which is parallel with our ordinary daily existence. A reality that is so close to what we live yet so far beyond.
No other artform in the history of mankind is as complete to replicate the experience of life in flesh and blood and involve us completely in its flow.
The language of film can play subtle notes of your soul, pleasure your senses, stimulate your grey cells and above all make you part of a reality unknown before its creation.
We the filmmaker have a magic wand to create this new world, this experience for individuals to live another life. A life which can – help understand our existing reality – take us beyond our limited self.
So a filmmaker plays God but let’s not have the God complex!
