Near Or Far

A poetic film in which the nature that surrounds an isolated man becomes a metaphor for his deepest feelings.

A man lives isolated on a rock/ island, between the sea and the sky. From his voice (with the right gravity), emanates a feeling of trying to belong to that space, infiltrated in the middle. He wants to be next to the fish but they don’t see him. He wants to be next to the seagulls but he can’t fly. This state of never knowing where we belong is a very contemporary feeling, and works as a powerful metaphor for our times. One body in one mind. I will always be near and far at the same time, for those who love me and for others. (Miguel Valverde)
