About The Project
Hi, my name is Remy, and for the past several years, I have been disconnecting myself from the world. After almost a decade of working in the corporate setting, I discovered how unbalanced I felt, and decided to explore new horizons by walking away to explore my authenticity.
I have found comfort through the wisdom and teaching of indigenous people and modern-days healers from all around the globe and from all walks of life. My vision is to empower my audience with these marvelous practices and give rebirth to the human spirit. From my travels, I have experienced the wonders of the human spirit again and that is why my film is called Sunny.
The story of this film revolves around Sunny. Sunny represents our everyday life of living in the modern world. In our story, Sunny has reached a point in his life where he is tired, unhappy, and doesn't feel the humanity in the world anymore. In a moment of bravery, Sunny steps back and begins to set out on a quest of a better connection with the world and his fellow man.
You will follow Sunny through the rocky points of his life and experience the power of self-healing, love, and trust from around the world.
WHY IT MATTERS NOW
As a society, we are connecting more with our devices and technology than those around us. We have lost our ability to genuinely connect with one another. The story invites everyone to enlighten themselves and create an understanding of our needs of self-love, self-worth, and connection with each other through connecting with our spirituality.
Sunny is a truly international project where cultures are filmed as local references. All cultures are only a product of the physical environment where they originate from. Unfortunately, they are often used as a tool for division by many people and organizations.
Sunny is a call for freedom; the freedom to make space around you to create the life you truly want, the freedom to feel and do what makes your heart sing. I want to inspire young men to take that step to help themselves, I believe this is a truly universal and important process that is unfortunately not taught in school.

About This Team
Writer and Director - Remy Despesse
Remy enjoys exploring his creativity and sharing his experience through film-making. He started his film-making journey a couple of years ago after quitting his corporate job and a good amount of travels and inner work and growth.
He thinks that spiritual and conscious content is very centered on documentaries. And when it comes to the near future, the majority of films and series are apocalyptic and dystopian. We don’t watch enough positive visions of our future.
His mantra as a film-maker: our reality is a direct transcription of our thoughts and imagination.
He lived in almost 10 countries around the world and feels home wherever he is. He sees the world as one single playground, one unlimited field of experiences and encounters.
He’s an empath and finds it easy to direct his cast in a creative flow. "Sunny" is an opportunity to continue learning by doing.
