Director Statement

Honored to be a part of this project! I wrote the screenplay in 2016 and we published it prematurely on YouTube. Five years later, we revamped it in late 2021 and early 2022, and added subtitles in multiple languages. This is my first film I wrote/directed. Our subtitles include English, Italian, French, Spanish which is accessible through SRT files loaded into our project here on FilmFreeway.
