When approaching real life stories and people, I have asked myself: Do I have the right to tell this story? Who am I to presume to understand these people, their motivations and emotions? After listening to interviews with Rachel - Sonja and Arye`s daughter and Tal`s mother - and reading the letters Arye sent to his sister after the war, I started to recognise human mechanisms of dealing with trauma and started to deconstruct them to the base emotional building blocks. Then, reversed the process and started constructing a figure, but this time while connecting to those emotions from within. This eventually allowed me and I believe, the audience, to connect from their own world of associations, to the base human condition the constructed figure has presented, and thus act as a mirror of one self.
