Home / MMSD / MMSD July 2019: FACING FEARS


Total duration    : 01:14:26

Programmer’s note:
We can never let go of fear. Like shadows it was hugging and becoming part of our life. This program explores fears of each characters both depart from the mind, after life and things we don’t know the origin source. Instead of being afraid, sometimes we should laugh at that fear, dance with it or even stay closer, stare at it.
