1 min excerpt.

"I am more of a listener. Maybe because I can be particular about whom I share my thoughts or emotions with. In general people need to talk and communicate and often have an urge to get things off their chest and I always have an open ear. I sometimes long to communicate something emotionally complex but when I try to, it doesn’t reach the other person properly and I feel more alienated afterwards than before. Things can turn awkward so quickly, which is why I often decide at the last moment not to take the risk after all. The video should carry with it the suggestion of a great disconnection with others, emotionally, psychologically, socially. What it comes down to is that in the end one is left alone with one’s pain."
