Director Statement

I have written this screenplay based on some personal stories and because I wanted to talk about the fact that families (including mine) like to keep a lot of secrets and that it isn't really healthy for anyone. However, I didn't want to write it as a drama, we have a lot of family dramas in our lives already, I wanted to write a comedy that would made people think. So, I have written and directed my first short film "Family Dinner" and I hope people laugh about what they are going to see, but also, think about it.
