A Shape Of An Empire – A California Trilogy

Whenever I reflect on the situation of today’s world, whether it concern the society, ecology, economy, culture or civilization, I always end up confronting the moral question: what action is acceptable or responsible? Humans believe that their will is free. This illusionary perception of freedom stems from our consciousness, experience and our indifference to prior natural causes. They are sensible of their desire and unaware of the causes by which their desires are determined. Hence this film piece illustrates the human behavior with ourselves and the relationship to nature in 3 chapters, in the living and life-giving organism of California.
