Director Statement

I worked extremely tirelessly on this short film, I believe that everyone has something to bring to the table. The individuals captured in this film directly affect my life in one way or another. I hope that you enjoy the short and if you don't you used 8:34 running time that you wasted because the visuals engulfed you. The emotion may not be there but the pain, travail, and passion in the characters should carry throughout the film. Thanks for viewing and thank you Madrone for giving Bay Area Artist / Videographers a safe space to present art, film, and other mediums of art.
