Although I believe that digital video has specific artistic possibilities, I do not believe that it is, in its current form, an appropriate medium for cinema fiction. However, having accepted the generous proposal of the JIFF to make a video film reflecting my idea of cinema, I have tried to conceive a work which functions within the limitations of the medium, by using only indoor and close-up shots, that is, those in which video can capture something of the energy of film. At the same time, the subject of my film reflects the moral question brought up by the video movement, because it concerns the way in which modern technology, imposed by outside political and economic forces, in some ways enables us to continue old things in a new form, but also, in some ways, completely transforms essential aspects of human life.
