metaphysical  living  of our life

“Man is condemned to be free; because once thrown into the world, he is responsible for everything he does. It is up to you to give [life] a meaning.”   Jean-Paul Sartre

“One’s life has value so long as one attributes value to the life of others, by means of love, friendship, indignation and compassion.”    Simone de Beauvoir

Gunn :
“We don’t have the right to judge him or deem him inferior. The interesting thing is why would someone want to become homeless. There has to be something, maybe a situation where he’s had to make a choice or has been forced to make that choice.”

Gunn :

“The word ‘homeless’, in my opinion, is someone who doesn’t have a permanent residence or a fixed place to live, but by his own choice as to which direction he wants to take his life. If we’re being positive, he’s an adventurer. Every day, his life is like an adventure. We don’t have the right to judge him or deem him inferior. The interesting thing is why would someone want to become homeless. There has to be something, maybe a situation where he’s had to make a choice or has been forced to make that choice. Or maybe it was the easiest way out of a situation. I’ve seen a video on YouTube about an African-American man, who had graduated from college, gotten married and had a family, but he chose to be a homeless person after his third divorce because life hadn’t been right for him. He wanted to understand himself better. He didn’t leave everything behind. He just tried living in a shelter, where no one knew him, no one to judge him. Being there made him felt worthwhile because there were things that he could do. He could help other people, people who couldn’t live a normal life. That’s what made him happy. Living the simplest life makes us the humblest.

I think it’s not about having no place to live, but a choice, one’s own choice. It’s about not having to care about the people around you or the society as to how they would perceive us or judge us. Like Cheng Guorong, a homeless guy in China who don’t care how people see. They’re above criticism. Some of them still have jobs but choose to live in a shelter because they don’t want to have anything to do with the society.”

Gunn :

“We should all have degrees, must be successful, must lead our lives according to the norm, both academically and professionally, and get married and have a family. Is that the right way to go? To me, everything isn’t always black and white, or good or bad.

My interest in the homeless stemmed from an idea that people shouldn’t be judged by their outer appearance. I want us to get to the point where no one is judged from the first impression. There shouldn’t even be any opinions. We shouldn’t have any thoughts when we walk past homeless people. We shouldn’t avoid them or act like we are disgusted by them. We should realize that a homeless person is just like everybody else on the street.”

“As an actor, I think an actor should understand other people and the character he or she plays. He or she should look for reasons to understand that character because in reality, we can never know what that person might or might not think.

Today’s shoot gave me a taste of what it felt like to be homeless. Every second, I tried to make myself see their thoughts or their concerns, which are probably what their lives will be like next or where they’ll sleep tonight. This is to get the feel of being a drifter without a fixed home. During the shoot, I was constantly asking myself how being homeless must feel like.”

Gunn :

Personally I think it’s one of the hardest thing to find the meaning of life and to be honest I don’t think any of us really know what life means. But to me life are the little things that touch us and makes us feel more alive, whether it’s waking up early, watching your cat sleeps and seeing how cute it is, looking at a tree and seeing how much it has grown or maybe it’s just sitting on the sidewalk and watching people pass by. Life is such a complex word to described or try to find the meaning to so I’m borrowing a phrase from John Lennon who says “Life is what happens while you’re busy making other plans”.
