Supernatural Thriller Set During Tsunami in 2004 Makes Europeans Angry

Vinyan, a story about a white European family that loses their baby during the tsunami has enraged some members of the European community. They believe that films staged during the context of horrendous events, should not be made.

Other people think that it is the role of art to look at things in a new light.

I think that people who have a memory of something horrible are afraid to deal with the fact that those feelings feed the ego, and they are unwilling to let go of them and let other feelings take over. It's an issue they have, emotionally, with control. I respect that disaster has struck these people's lives. But it is the purpose of art to help us move along in our lives, at the expense of our egos.
