"The abandonment of ethics and needs is reflected in the breakdown of buildings, societies and relationships. Created in a moment of connection, this short film has a resonance that is recognizable to those experiencing privatization of public places and life.
The commercialization and privatization of public goods, the water, the air, the land, the sea, the seeds is legitimized under the guise of the debt and a development that only aims at profit.
All these are decided in our absence.
What is development really?
What is environmental consciousness?
Is there development when it is not compatible with nature?
Are we confusing economic self-sufficiency with the looting of a place?
Technology with greed?
At the very end, could this devastation of nature lead to the devastation of our own soul?
"Art can be a catalyst; a herald of truth and dream, beauty and desire, innocence and actuality; especially in times of ‘crisis’, as in the case of Greek society. The Greek word ‘crisis’ means ‘judgement-opinion’ and this is a great philosophical statement, holding various different meanings. Judge as in faithfully thinking, perceiving, supporting an opinion, as in being clear towards an ideological view.
The balance between body, mind, heart, spirit are all involved in a ‘crisis’ era."
