“As Teddy Roosevelt once quoted: “Keep your eyes on the stars and your feet on the ground.” My interpretation being: let go of negative emotions that devour you, and cherish the memory of your loved one as a halo that guides you. They will always be with you, because of your unconditional love. Their memory and your love for them will surely set you free.
By setting the story in Chernobyl, I wanted to create a film not about a catastrophe or its consequences, such as death, loss and grief. I have been striving to redefine them in a highly positive way. I want to show a special view of the situation, by making a film about how unconditional love helps to overcome grief and loss. I wanted to make a film that would be a Wonderwall - something that gives strength, a sturdy foundation for hope.
Telling the story through the perspective of a young man that has all his life ahead of him, but having lost the most amazing girl in the world, he lost himself, my desire was to help such people reframe this terrible experience and take possession of their lives.
I want people to reconcile with themselves and in their hearts realize the realities of these two dissonant worlds. To help them cope with the loss of a loved one in a different light. To be inspired by what this person means to them. The love of a loved one remains forever, they will always have a special place in their heart, as they forge ahead in creating a new life. Finding this new freedom will exhilarate one, like a big breath of fresh air, every pore will open itself to this new found realization."
