Sunday night, memory fragments from the animal planet. A gazelle is being ripped apart in slow motion by a pack of hyenas. Soothing to watch as the weekend comes to an end, and existential anxiety is at its peak. The comforting assurance of knowing that nature will always take its course. Of having no choice – but to accept, and let go.

Hope Blinds Reason is a visual narrative from a series of journeys made in India along the river Ganga, from its source in the Himalayas to its delta in the Bay of Bengal. It is a story about an attempt to come to terms with one of the most elementary of human experiences, love, and loss.
