It is thought that we apply a story or a narrative around the succession of experiences to describe the path our lives may take. Movies are often based on this idea. In my film, I've tried to narrow it down to thoughts or memories that occur to me at the time of making. This way it doesnâ€™t really define my own life, as most of the important things are relationships and beliefs, which may develop over many years and not made clear in recollections. It is the memories rather than the events which make this film, and therefore this story. The exploration of visual language, with respect for human experience, is defined by individual sensitivity and understanding. The story of life will be the universal account of human experience.
