Director statement

“The directionless voyage of a blind man to redefine the coordinates of a world. This is what I had in mind before I began shooting. To reformulate our point of view through the peregrinations of a blind man; a more elementary and fragmentary way of looking to penetrate a place that seems familiar and instead is still immensely mysterious. A sort of science fiction documentary, where powerful spirits, like Moo Ya of the Nile, still spark fear and where the tragedy of mankind seems interminable.”
