’If I could see myself a few years ago I’d be a millionaire - if I only knew then what I know now. A person shouldn’t just look at and compare yourself to others - you need to look at yourself and let yourself grow into life so that you reach out to others.’
Video inspired by ‘Swart ster oor die Karoo’ (Black star over the Karoo) by Jan Rabie, 1957. In the novel there is a chapter where the humans are given the opportunity to see themselves - as they are in the past, but ahead of the time they left to travel to the future.
