We Are Not Alone
About the Project
Living in a desert is an experience that changes us forever. Scarcity and the sun overhead all day long without a single shade, makes us see the world in a different way. Countless stars shine in an unreal sky, over an endless road through the Atacama desert. The feeling of isolation and loneliness took over me. I was there, just waiting for the first contact. We are not alone. " Inspired by movies and stories that made part of my childhood."
