Director Statement

From the moment I read the first draft, long before it even had a title, I knew I was committed to brining the words on the page to screen, for I heard the beating of a heart hidden between the lines. The relationship that the protagonist, Yoyo, shares with her grandmother, Lola, is one that’s not at all far from my own personal life. I lost both my grandfather’s suddenly, both within the span of six painful and long months. I shared a very unique friendship and relationship with both of them; one very different from the other. What remains the same is how strongly they affected me in my upbringing and the part they have played in my life and for that I am forever grateful. The strongest memories will last longer than the final echo of my voice - far beyond my breath is taken - but they are forever haunted by the last moments I shared, but foremost didn’t share with them.
‘Together Again’ tells a remarkable story about the strength and bond that love wraps us in, and the difficulty of letting go. Without the highs and lows life has to offer, life wouldn’t be viewed the same way we do when we’re aware of how fragile and precious the short experience truly is. The protagonist faces perhaps the toughest time in her life and needs to face much more than the outcome that may come upon her sooner than she expects, and learn that life does not wait; life is now.
