Director Statement:
As we enter into this new century, I’m once and again surprised at the quick pace the World is changing as it incorporates technologies and modifies old structures to become a new World. I find it urgent that cinema turns its lens on the reasons and instruments through which violence becomes systematised and millions of people become excluded.
