Director Statement

Greenhouse is a coming of age film that tells a story about resilience, hope, and the pursuit of dreams. With this film, I wished to capture the struggles of a young immigrant teenager who refuses to give up on his dreams, despite the obstacles that he faces. It's a story that hits close to home for me. As someone who has grown up in a foreign country, I can feel firsthand how challenging it can be to navigate the cultural differences and prejudices.
It's a film that I hope will inspire young people and adults
alike to never give up on their dreams, no matter how
difficult the road ahead may be.
