We wanna keep telling you about our story. And we want to be as intimate as possible.
In the first draft of the script, the family were very close, and this is how they would sleep at night. It's something I witnessed in my research and I found was fairly common in certain areas. For the apartment to be one room and for the entire family to sleep on one matt or thin mattress with a fan blowing in the extremely humid climate.
I like this photo (and I'm desperately trying to track down the photographer) because it's shot with a tenderness and sensitivity. There's a warmth. It's not dark and dank or gritty. You can feel the love and closeness.
I think this is how my characters grew up together. Aya and Inday. And as they got older things started to get more complicated. And now where they are, things would be bluer and greener. Because as you get older and see more it can really change you.
But I would say persevere. Have courage and survive through the tough and you'll find that warmth and closeness again.
Just rewrote the ending of our film this morning. Added a scene. :) really hope you all enjoy the film.
