Director Statement

What attracted me to this script, in particular, was the ability to convey a story using the physicality of the actors, as I'm a visual storyteller and there is only one line of dialogue. In addition, the chance to direct a Welsh film was something I could not turn down, as creatively this was inspiring for me alongside a cast and crew that is culturally extremely unique.
