Director Statement

As our first work it was a great experience. A healthy teamwork is proved to be more important than having talented crew or equipment. We are basically students since unemployed. So by our little means we managed to make a film. We enjoyed our work. Sweat is an ironical street drama where it's established that consciousness and hesitations inside a being sometimes create a tougher ambiance which is rather awkward to deal with. Hope people will like our first effort inspite of countless faults and limitations. Thank you.
