LIFE

A short non-commercial movie by Pixelhunters. Became Vimeo Staff Picks and Finalist at the New York City International Film Festival. Citated more than 27000 times on google. More than 3 Million views on different Youtube channels where the video was featured. 

Life is a battle of choices and roads to be taken. We choose our own paths, we mark our own map. Once choices have been made, actions play out. Consequences are delivered. And in the end, we live with those consequences.

But, the real struggle is making the choice to change how we take the roads untaken.  Are we tough enough to decide for ourselves when the time comes?

Script:
Life.

Given to us billions of years ago. 
Breathing, making choices, cultivating purpose.
we marvel with the reasons  our core existence.

Predominance, obsession and what's only left is its lethal outcome around.
I was given life,
what have I done ?

Memories occurred to me like a flood, 
ravishing into the deepest turmoil of my thoughts. 
I used to see myself as an aggressive bullet wandering - 
tearing  down races,  razing enemies.
The recollection of my belligerence. Will it change?
Now  all my senses could perceive is emptiness. 
couldn't have I stopped at the right moment, 
when few hearts were still beating?
Is there still something worth opening my eyes for?

Yet, here I am, facing again that demon inside me.
another battle to win
The monster in me respires with prudence. My inner self astounded. 
and then, for a heart beat
I know what to do with it.
