2017 - For me Rescue is about uselessness and emptiness. The film has been made in cooperation with Merlijn Willemsen, a friend of mine. While creating the storyline, I had no idea where it all would end. Through the progress, the film got his own shape. I would like to work without preparing a lot. Preparing itself is a good thing, but preparing the preparation is not really my style.
The boy in the film is saved, standing near an abyss on the brink of life and death. I believe there are a lot of people who face such situations and need help, but do not receive it. I wanted to make a film about impotency of individuals in the society. Two significant moments in the film are the shot of the boy who was saved from jumping and the final shot, taking distance slowly from the story. These moments make me feel like hope does exist. It is my intention to treat life seriously: heaviness does not disappear occasionally, but takes its time.
