Director’s Statement


The idea for the film, Virus, sprang from my personal growing aggression, and the feeling of alienation in a big city. Here, loneliness is seen as a social phenomenon capable of spreading like a disease. Chasing the idea of a secure life, millions of us rush in different directions every day, and collide with each other at different times, as we are, subconsciously, responding to the millions of stimuli present. The crushing density of city life makes it harder for us to focus, and hence interferes dangerously
with our self-control.
