About the director

Nils Skapāns is experienced artist, he have directed more than 30 animations.
Nils Skapāns: “I like today’s technologies and the opportunities they give. And I also use them. But I must say that it is often because I have to and not because I want to. It is all good but… sometimes it makes me sick to think about how involved, addicted and calculable we have become. It is stupid that a software can calculate what we want and, what is even crazier, that it knows how to make us get something we do not need. I might be naive but I believe in one’s common sense, fantasy and natural rowdiness that does not succumb to this ‘artificial intellect’. And that is what my new movie will be about.It will not save or even change the world, but at least I will have expressed my point of view.”
