Since at that time I'll be traveling, I have given my access to our girl TeamK_1 and if there's something new she will share it with you all on her twitter & I guess, in comments below. :)

Director's Statement: (Drake Doremus)
"When I started this project, I began with one singular thought. What would happen if we lived in a world in which love does not exist anymore? What if the very thing that makes us the most human, we’ve evolved away from? I then began to think about what the fundamental reason for existence is.
I am always aiming to reflect on my own human experience in the most honest way possible. With this film I am, in many ways, trying to know the unknowable: can the human soul be modified? Does it change over time? Or, conversely, is it steadfast because it understands its innate desire to connect—to love and, in turn, be loved?
I longed to create a tone and a texture that simply washes over you so you can purely experience the film through a mixture of the senses; not to make the audience think as much as to make them feel. I am consistently preoccupied with the idea that we are here to try and understand this simple, yet extremely complex, experience as human beings. As people who are born with the capacity to love."
