Director Intention : I like to think of ARDOR as a “Mesopotamic Western” or as a Western in the jungle. It tells the struggle between man and nature, the conflictive atmosphere of the frontier where an apparent advance of progress faces a natural state of things that took millions of years to configurate. It is also a personal blood war. It is the tale of an unfolding revenge.
