Everything about ‘Distance’ started from my own experience. It’s about me, my brother and my father.

The relationship between my brother and my father has been always terrible. They never communicated and the worst part of them was that they never ever tried to understand each other. I wanted to talk about this in a slight humorous way.I highly believe that lack of communication between a father and a son is not an issue that I only experienced. Even though ‘Distance’ started off from my own personal experiment, I didn’t think this was just my own baggage. This is what happening to all of us. Because of the generation gap between parents and kids in these days, it is understandable conflicts that they would have. But, if we try to find a common issues that we can talk about with our parents constantly, I believe the relationship will get better like it was never been better.

From the start of the movie, the father and the son do not understand each others sentiments while they are watching television. The father have a hard time figuring out why his son is laughing and the son finds really weird why his father is crying for. However, at the very end of the film, they find something that interests both of them together and start to gather up better.
