The basis of returning to global nature is to get to know the nature within us – our own nature – and to look at the process of individual (personality) development as a component of a global phenomenon.
The film brings a poem to life that winds between childhood memories, diary notes, and their adult interpretation, reflecting the issues raised by the search for the meaning of existence and the feeling of frequent hopelessness. Jumping between dreams, nightmares, and confused memories, Grandma’s timeless, safe figure links to the stars that show a path in the dark as the shining responses of the universe. At the same time, through their continuous transformation during the poem, they embody the only constant thing as well – the change itself.
Password to the * * * * * (by Adél Szegedi)
Nature fosters garden in the sky,
milky-ways cross the star-plantation.
I’m picking broccoli trees on Earth,
plowing mashed potatoes with my fork.
Night-coffee in my mug: would you like some stars in it?
I ask myself…but no one answers.
Against reality just rub your eyes,
nightmares go to sleep in the morning.
The cocoa roll is made under Grandmother’s hands,
her hair is a cloud of flour, her smile stretched wide.
“If you step on the sidewalk crack, the lava will absorb you!”
– The gate of hell opens under the church.
Half-sleep born by shadows is
blurred celestial-body in my mind.
I climb to the attic in the dark,
there I can find the password to the stars.
(The director was born in 1998.)
