     Director Statement

Nothing like history has ever affected so strongly the Human life. History being continuously in a strange confusion has always been a means of wars, walls and judgments. The abuse of history by today’s political, military and power-seeking purposes is an evidence for its importance. The film “Light-Year” tries to be a simple narrative of a woman’s picture and her imaginations from the past. Only things like religion, concepts and words remain from history. A history that if we want to discover its reality we need to cover the distance of light-years.
