Director Statement

I don't want to tell my audiences what to think or how to feel, but as a documentarian, I want to share with them as best I can what it was like to be in the place that I was, and that way to exist in the moment together. I do want to make them laugh though, and if that requires me to make an ass of myself, then that's easily enough done.
