It’s not just the effect of technology on the environment on religion on the economic structure on society on politics etc. It’s that everything now exists in technology to the point where technology is the new and comprehensive host of nature of life.
Now having said that I realize that releasing a film in the real world is like trying to get General Motors to release a handmade car.

So to hope to be able to have peace to be able to have justice and environmental balance are consequences of our behavior not just our intentions.
It is very easy to make clear what you want a film to say but I did not wish to engage in overt propaganda even for the right cause. I wanted to create an experience through the films something where people could have the freedom of their own response to them.

What I’m trying to do is to at least raise a flag to the blinding light of technology.
