Director Statement

2020 didn’t feel like a full year. After March, I spent a lot of time inside my house and anytime I had to venture outside was daunting. With several projects piling up at the same time and responsibilities creeping quickly towards the deadline, I lost sleep over it. The biggest issue was, the less sleep I got, the less I could focus on finishing my projects. My mind kept looking at the smallest insecurities and inconveniences and blowing them out of proportion, and it would just add to the ever-growing list of things to stress over, and so on. When the time to make Encroachment rolled around, this turned into a good thing because, to me, showing those struggles onscreen is the best way to make someone care and connect.
