Director’s statement
“I ran away from the city’s chaos, and got in touch with the people who were out of sight, away from the corruption. I saw they were green in the middle of a red field. They were looking for life in the ground. Then, I became aware and I was embraced by sadness, I wept for myself. MY MOTHER’S BLUE SKY is my moment of awareness”.
