  • Director's Statement:
    I wanted to make this film because I am interested in externality and in the collision of a person’s inner and outer world. What do we actually mean when we talk about externality and external threat? As half-Egyptian and half-Finnish, I have always felt myself a bit of an outsider, never fully belonging anywhere and this feeling has pushed me to want to explore these inner and outer boundaries, who determines and defines them for us and how much do we actually set them for ourselves?
