Director Statement

I grow up hating my own body. Feel discomfort about how I looked
like and how others, including my own family members perceived me.

The adolescent time was the most difficult as I was trying to find myself. In my short film “Field Trip” I want to capture the subtle nuances of those time and open a discussion on the subject of body-shaming.

That is not to advocate accepting an unhealthy life style, but to provide platform to talk about self-acceptance and self-love.
