“Invasion” is the result of a group work in collaboration with individuals who are each of the best in their field. A collection of unparalleled actors, all coming from theater, and behind-the-scenes footage. For me, as the creator of this film, there is no concession unless I have had the chance to bring together such a group. That’s why I do not get an excuse to imagine that I could have done a better job of this movie. I did what I thought, and if there is a shortage in the film, it’s about me and my words.
The “invasion” is a mix of my favorite cinematic worlds. It’s a complex that made the complex world and I hope that this world is doesn’t feel hard to understand and penetrate for the spectator. I know that there are many ways to enter the hard wall.
I wanted to thank the most important members of the group in this note but each name follows other names. This group is like a chain linking up. So, I write only that my biggest fear is not to find all this power in the future films. But no. I just have to raise my head up a little bit and look at them. They are just around the corner.
