Director's statement

“I had never considered in my head or my heart, to make a film... I have always been a cinema spectator and I have always loved letting myself be carried away by the stories of others... That's what adventure means: it's emotion above all... And me, from the top of my little meter 50, I launched into this adventure, more physical than cinematographic. When I got home, I realized that all these encounters were in fact pushing me towards the path of directing... But honestly, at the beginning, nothing destined me to end up with this film on the screens, quite the contrary.
When you don't plan anything, everything seems simple! I had no concrete objective when I left, no goal to achieve. So I let myself be carried away by the sensations, the moments lived, the encounters. To tell you the truth, I just changed my phone before leaving to be able to take photos and that's where I bought my first iPhone, in 2016! Above all, I saw it as a tool to communicate with myself, something that allowed me to reconnect with what I knew. I was far away, alone, there was a lot of fear and anxiety in my heart and I told myself that I had a way to stay in touch. That said, I never immediately thought of using these images to do something else with them. My plans were unclear, my phone was upside down all the time! In fact, it was the elements around me that made the quality of my images, not me. In the end, when I put all this together and the idea of ​​making a film out of it, I said to myself that it would be impossible. The desire to leave with a real camera even crossed my mind to make real beautiful shots, but with my producers, we decided to do something sincere, from what we had.”
