Director Statement

Having moved away from home to attend college myself, I often think about how most of my time spent with my parents is now in my past. I created this film out of love for my own father, who I wish I could spend more time with and fear losing. It’s important at this stage in our lives as students to make the most out of the time we spend with our loved ones, as we never know when these moments could be the last.
