Director’s Vision for ‘The Enemy’

“The Enemy” – Is a pure art passion project, a short fashion horror film, and a visual poem based on Haruki Murakami’s quote: “Hatred is like a two-edged sword, when you cut the other person, you cut yourself.”

Sometimes we just say something without thinking about the partner’s feelings. Under the thin skin, on the human’s soul, we are leaving small cuts, that slowly become deep bleeding wounds. It hurts, but as it is love, we keep walking on this razor’s edge again and again. Eventually, the wounds fill the minds with blood and make both drown in it.

Shot on Kodak 16mm by Ukrainian director Shapxo and his production team who are fleeing from the War in Ukraine in Europe. After the production stage, we’ve been working on it more than for 5 months in a row with a Kyiv-based post-production team, dealing with electricity problems every day and praying for each of the team members. In the end, we finally did it, and it’s an honor to share this short film with you now.
