DIRECTOR’S VIEW

 

A human being with nothing to lose can be turned into most dangerous weapon on earth. Instead of a silent, unnoticed end, when the time is right, those who have nothing to hang on to will destroy not only themselves but also others Hopelessness has come to be the major weapon to accumulate and wield power. One’s hopelessness becomes the unimaginable power of others.  That is why in pursuit of power, one’s arch enemy is also one’s best ally. Armies will be formed; wars will be fought against the enemy. By that enemy, one’s power will swell, be righteous and important. This is the biggest and most preposterous game that humanity has come to play since the very beginning. Creating enemies to be powerful; the fear that mobilize masses around one, forsaking what they have and their liberty. All the civilizations have been built by resorting to the dazzling power of fear. We are brothers in arms facing “the other” who are threatening our lives.
