Director's Statement

All of us have our own demons inside of us. Hindering our capabilities, vision and purpose to nourish. And in times where we can no longer surpass these enemies, we thirst for help, we beg for mercy.

But apparently, these demons have the power to infect our willingness to surrender, making us think to be judged, branded and bullied if someone will know and see them. As a result, we’ll just keep our mouth shut and feed the dark voices in our head.

"Dok (Doc)" centers on the irony that heroes save others but they can’t save themselves. It aims to glorify that help knows no status and titles. Conveying the message that we are all people and we all need help.
