Director Statement

Nothing can be more challenging for a filmmaker than the attempt to tell a very simple and relatable story that is at the same time very well layered to engage both the shallow and profound; a cinematic piece like a buffet or a parable for each one to take their own meaning from and read their own life into it with fine comprehension and satisfaction. KOKO: The Box TV is just that kind of cinematic piece.
