My films explore some sort of melancholic realm and this is where ‘I AM’ started as this universal story about loneliness and how we try to connect with people. The reason why I choose to create a really dramatic fictional portrait is because I think that a lot of people suffer from depression or anxiety due to several reasons. But despite all of our differences, I am convinced that we are not so different at all.Seemingly differences in appearance make us unique, but everything rests on the same foundation. That we all need love, compassion, warmth and affection. No matter who or where we are in life.
