“Lula and Zeen have a beautiful story, as epic as any starfighter battle, and I wanted to show it. An intimate, tender and calm moment together. A loving hug watching the stars, their destiny! Because in the grand scheme of things, even on a galactic level, it’s the little human things that really matter. —Javier Garron
