Body

"DEAR SCIENTISTS …" is a documentary and academic/educational film that draws attention to the seriousness of science ethics and its global implications. With an artistic touch, the film connects past with present, stirring emotions. Building a better future requires historical wisdom and humanistic feelings. Science is beautiful – only if it has a soul.

Images dominate our memories. Feelings shape our thinking. Music brings us balance. Keeping these in mind, I created the film’s allegoric scenes aiming to leave an indelible impression of the scientists' ethical and social responsibility.
