Director's Statement

In my movie I want to discuss the intercultural processes which are being destroyed by globalization (which for sure has its positive aspects too), especially the authentic cultures that become assimilated and forgotten. How do we interpret vanished cultures, that haven’t left any traces? And which interpretation is used to strengthen our very own position?
