Director Statement

India had long been on my list of world destinations to visit for many years, so when my friend, Raja Deka, invited me to join on his trip to visit his family, I jumped at the opportunity. This was the chance of a lifetime to create a short film to document his personal story and make my debut as a filmmaker.
Upon arriving in Guwahati, I immediately began shooting footage of the overwhelming and chaotic traffic while riding in the car from the airport. It was quite an experience in what appeared to be a free for all in getting from one place to another not to mention the cacophony of car horns in a futile attempt to make traffic move faster.
One of the special elements of “Going Home Again” is the music of which includes segments of songs to honor Raja’s mother that were written and sung by his father. My only wish is that both of his parents were still here to be a part of the project. I am honored that we created this project in loving memory of them.
