Director Statement

I wrote and director this film and co-operated with William Ranieri who is a Filmmaker and Editor.

I want made a short film about the sisters their reaction about their parents' death was unexpected. To show the sisters' feelings, and emotional and also what they had their thoughts of their parents' actions for them.

This film is showing to the audience how they can relate with the sisters through their experiences especially the sisters were conversation about the parents' death and their memories with their British sign language (BSL) and their expression and emotions can show to the audience to understanding about the sisters' feelings.

The two sisters are main roles in a short film, they are a different personalities. Zoya is a mature and loved her own parents very much but Wafia is a rebel, doesn’t love her own parents because of the past.

There are two ways of Zoya was supported and Wafia was against their parents.I want that is a part to show to the audience's reactions and responses would be either Agree or Disagree.

It is very important that the sisters were discussed the situations with the parents before they move on.

A real world, daily a parent or the parents look after the children and raise them in the good or bad way.

Would the sisters stay together as a family?

My favourite words are forget and forgiveness.
