Director Statement

Chi Va Piano was a very personal story for me. After losing my brother to depression during the pandemic I wanted to retell a story I had already written. Chi Va Piano serves as a reminder of the importance of staying close to those you care about and for a personal note it serves as a proper goodbye to my brother.
