I've filmed this work for three reasons. Firstly, it was important for me to convey to the audience (and to strengthen it in myself) the idea that it is more important to be able to support and forgive people who need it than to demand support and forgiveness from others. Secondly, at the time of the filming I was interested in the topic of family relations, especially the relationship between father and son. Thirdly, I was absolutely fascinated by the poetry of the location, which became the main element in this film.
