The dehumanization of people is of great concern to me, and the increasingly creative ways that we put technological devices between each other in order to communicate I believe is at the heart of Modern Age Amour. It's a fever dream that presented itself to me almost all at once. My goal was to make something unapologetically visual and combine that with the growing sense of technological alienation we are beginning to feel in Western culture. The sound design, visual, and musical elements hopefully all come together to create a film that is a warning, but if I'm being honest, the greatest joy I feel is watching what people get out of it. Like the film itself is a Rorschach test from some half forgotten memory.
