“The moment we cry in a film is not when things are sad but when they turn out to be more beautiful than we expected them to be.” – Alain de Botton

Film is my way of capturing what one or even a series of photographs cannot properly convey. There’s something wonderful about the way you can steal from moments that just pass and no longer exists and then get to relive them. In this way, how can we say that time travel doesn’t exist? Perhaps not how science fiction defines it, but the medium of film is man’s best effort so far as manipulating time and the past. Below are some of my travel film projects over the years. I’d like to think that in a span of a few minutes, a bunch of moments can be threaded to bring back all the memories of the instances in between for me. For the viewer, I want to take them to these places in a way where the senses that are missing can be imagined.
