The Wisdom Tree

This film was inspired from the phrase 'you are the summary of the 5 people you surround yourself with most'. It's a way to connect human beings to one another through emotions and experiences that we all have but often feel as if we are alone. Everyone has one of these people in their lives and you are one of these people to someone else.

Director Statement

The Wisdom Tree is a passion project that stemmed from the phrase "You are the summary of the 5 people you surround yourself with most. So, who are you?" It's about discovering oneself and looking back on the past with a realistic but positive light. I am so proud of have had it win the Audience Award last month at the GLVFF. Knowing this film has made an impact on others is everything I could ask for as a film maker
