From the film-maker:
The composition is absolutely calm – a single figure reading at a table in a large and almost empty area – but still visually interesting.
The mood stimulated my curiosity and the only word I left with was ‘knowledge’. Within the scheme of light and shade I saw the battle between knowledge and ignorance. Some of us are trying to light our way in the journey of life with knowledge to become human beings.
‘The Journey’ is a film that shows the hard life of people who would like to know.
