Walden is a short film inspired from Henry David Thoreau´s book, about a man retreating from modern society to live a simple life in the midst of nature, in a nostalgic cabin in the middle of the woods. Longing to find relaxation and peace, the man enjoys the quiet and pure life around his cabin. He suddenly falls back into his old habit and turns into a tech nerd - uploading his pictures in social media and reconnecting with the world. Happily exhausted after this flashback into old habits, he finds balance again in nature and silence. He disconnected to find himself reconnected to inner peace, discovering balance between his modern world way of thinking and nature.
