Director's statement

This story may seem distanant and old, but for me it is much more relevant fo nowadays than any modern story. As deeper I go in this subject as more I am assured that nothing really changed, still, we worry about food, clothes and a house to live, in case we are rich just eating better food, buying much more clothes and living in a bigger house. As a human we didn't really evolved, our needs seem really the same and still when there is someone who stands up, discovers the world with the different angle, opening a different way of being human, it seems just as easy to throw him in the dust or kill, as than.

 

There is a huge amount of information, discoveries and places when we talk about prehistoric time, I could only touch a little bit of it, but what I understand, is that no one really knows exactly how did everything looked like, which gives a plenty room for imagination. What I know for sure is that nothing must be the same as today, it's a big challenge to create environment weird and believable.
