Director Statement

Hope – it is what drives humanity for a better tomorrow. Whether it is 2018 or 2151, hope is what pushes us to be better, try harder and to stand up for what is right. “Reclamation” is a culmination of our present world heightened into a futuristic reality where one entity owns the entire galaxy. It is a medley of high technology mixed with repression and poverty. It is an imagination of what could become, amazing advancements that inevitably re-shape the existence of humanity and how life is lived – if lived at all. It is a journey of hope and discovery, about how far a person would go to reclaim what has been taken from them.

 

As a director I really wanted to shine a light on the polarities of today and the future. To explore a world at its core that still deals with the same issues present in our society. To see what could become, and what still is. To imagine the best and the worst of technological and medical advancements and its unique synchronicity with wealth and poverty combined. To discover where in this world hope lives, for it is in the past and present that we can learn that family, friendship and love remain constants, and with evolution one would hope, that hope still prevails
