Director Statement

With 'Ema', I wanted to capture the phenomenal story of a siren and make it small yet teeming with humanity. Considering how close the actors' lives are to their characters in the movie, I feel my movie captures real life on the Adriatic coast, with all the love, laughter and fear that comes with it.
