Overview

Review

In the beginning, I have thought of a medium as my subject matter. I find her interesting and unbelievably accurate. I even had the title named A Conversation with God. But, no matter how I pleaded and begged, I still failed to persuade my subject. Her reason? The God inside her is camera-shy. One night I heard that the medium was on trance and the God was being awakened. In much hurry, I jumped on my 50cc motorbike, equipped with my DV, I was determined to ask, face to face, via my DV, whether the God could please grant me permission to film Her. The most curious thing happened. While I was on my way, I was caught in a traffic jam. There was a ceremony being held in a nearby temple. People gathered feasting and the banquet tables took over a large part of the road. Alas. There was another God here celebrating her birthday. My camera did not capture any God. Instead I have discovered A Conversation with God.
