Question: So your view of the world is more hopeful than it was twelve months ago when the film was made?
Answer: Yes, yes. But the worse it is now and the more epidemic the holidays will cause, you can see at the end of the tunnel. We have already floated 99 percent in the ocean and now we are missing one percent. Now is not the time to walk around and swim back, we are close! I have high hopes for the whole world, politically and for the people.
Question: Technology plays an essential role in your film when humanity comes into continuous existence. What is the most recent achievement that has given you hope?
Answer: This cannot give me more hope than the fact that we have two, three, maybe four vaccines. When you think about how long it took other viruses to develop vaccines, it makes me very optimistic that these people can be together in just one year. I was very surprised.
Q: The film also thinks about the fact that you should always do something in life, even if you are only helping each other. Do you see it as a star or are feeling strong at some point, recognizing your own vast potential and trying to reach as many people as you can?
Answer: This is a double-edged question, it can be from both sides. You can go out and talk to as many people as you can, try to take them in the direction that you think is better for the world. Educating people about injustice in the world is not an insignificant thing.
But on the other hand it is different feeling. Will saving a person make any difference? Yes. Saving a single life obviously makes the difference. If you have the opportunity, take it.
