Director's statement

I didn’t really make this documentary thinking that I was a director or a filmmaker. To me, the value of documentation is far more important than the film itself. Therefore, in an era of digital media, if we could gain a new perspective through our visual or sensual experience, then to whether a filmmaker or a viewer, it is far more praiseworthy than one could describe.
