Director Statement

When Rosa approached me with this project; a dramatic comedy with an international collaboration aspect, I knew I had to jump on it.
This being Rosa's first written screenplay, I was pleasantly surprised by her talent, her comedic timing as well as her vision.
From the moment I read the first draft I knew we had a gem.
This story about a group of friends, with such diverse characteristics and personalities, coming together over their mutual loss of a friend made me see the five stages of grief in a whole new light.
Each and every one of the characters has their own beautiful and traumatic way of coping with the sate they're in and the way the story slowly burns with the help of a dynamic theme song is really affective.
It was a pleasure working with this team and I am so excited to share our work with you!
