Award-Winning Short ‘MAYA’ To Be Released Tomorrow

Award-Winning Short ‘MAYA’ To Be Released Tomorrow

I keep on saying that every person has their own story that shapes the way they perceive films, music, paintings, and writings… ‘MAYA’ has come at a time in my life when I needed a glimmer of hope the most. Not only is it a very poetic, visually brilliant film, supporting a story that withholds tenderness as much as it does cruelty, but also and mostly a heart-to-heart whisper breathing life into anyone watching it. So I’ll treat myself with this art piece tomorrow and keep it close to forever remember what it feels like to lose faith and find hope again.
