The film also talks about how memories and photographs might not show what really happens between couples. The happy memories of those moments that will never come back, and it just makes the whole thing more interesting and that generates unrealistic expectations .
”It is a personal project, so no clients were involved. What I wished and wanted to convey with Dark Room was: Well, I believe happiness does not exist without sadness and sadness does not exist without happiness. One doesn’t exist without the other, sometimes you could be happy and yet sad at the same time. This is the principle of homesickness, of nostalgia, all those feelings mostly produced by memories. It is a bittersweet feeling”
