    ‘I believe this story can speak to the many of us obliged to spend long hours each day anchored to desks and screens — all the more so in this era of COVID — struggling to see what our individual contributions can possibly amount to within the broader picture.’ 

    While director Hermanus added that the purpose of the film is to show that one of the purposes of humanity is that each individual’s small contribution might seem insignificant in the grand scheme of things, but that each small effort to help others is what life is about.

    Living is being developed by Film4 and Ingenious Media, and in association with Kurosawa Productions and executive producer Ko Kurosawa.
