The Catalyst : Short Film
We are born without values, beliefs or principles. We absorb these from our immediate surroundings as we grow up, and over time. Guidelines by which we live our lives. When we experience difficulties and challenges, we apply these principles to solve our problems, and use this experience to help ourselves to get through tougher trials.
The film showcases the destructive effects of the violence which so often accompanies extremist attitudes, and the costs that it incurs. With so many dying because of the pride of others, the film asks, “How much more human suffering are we willing to endure in the name of pride, before we find the catalyst for change?
