A short film about self-determination



“To be one's self, and unafraid whether right or wrong, is more admirable than the easy cowardice of surrender to conformity.”
- Irving Wallace

Do I live the way I want to? Everybody knows the feeling which comes with that question. A human dilemma – being torn apart by what you feel is right and what you think is wrong. A film about self-determination. Focusing on the process, the journey – with euphoria and anxiety constantly taking turns. Exploring the “man against self“ conflict the project aims to challenge traditional ways of brand communication.
