Director Statement

The story and plot for “Forgiving Sky” is inspired by a true story from Central African Republic that happened a few months ago. When faced with a desperate and relentlessly inhuman situation, how long can we hold on to our humanities and our collective dignity as humans? This is a question I want to impose upon the audience with this film and the answer still eludes me to this day.
