Director Statement

I want to create films that a bit different in form, a mixture of experimental with drama. I have a determined set of ideas and often follow the artist plan to the end. I always want to ask questions such as what if? and why? I like to incorporate psychology, philosophy into my films, not just to make films as viewing pleasure but for a reaction from the audience, a mirror into what dwells deep inside us all.
