This film has been a gift to me. It felt like a catalyst that opened up a bunch of things for me. Personal things in all aspects of life as well as creative endeavors which provide a lot of value in my life. Storytelling through film, for me, is just an amazing experience. It is complicated and challenging, stimulating and nourishing. I am grateful for the opportunity to be involved in the making of films. I have learned so much throughout the years. Things that helped me in all aspects of my life that have influenced me to become the person that I am today. This is my graduate thesis film and I truly hope that I will make many after it.
