Director's Statement

Solar Wind Alley film began from a need to deal with future and fears. The film started as an absurd idea of what could happen if a powerful solar flare hit the earth and left the planet without electricity, how would life continue after that. The story deals with self-reliance and ecological crisis without being too heavy.
