Director Statement

Hindsight is a story of self discovery. The film portrays the personal struggle of a woman (Ana) finding her place in the world, building her identity and taking control of her future.

The violent act that begins the film is a wake up call to Ana. She starts questioning who she is and what she envisions for her and her child's future. She wonders whether she should stay, what life would be like if she left and where, as a foreigner, she would go.

My main objective as a director was to raise these questions with the audience, and in doing so, depict Ana's identity as well as the environment that surrounds her. This project required a detailed observation of family dynamics as well as research into Scottish culture. It provided an opportunity to reflect on the impact that older generations have on the mindset of new ones and the ways that our cultural heritage shapes our identity. Ultimately, I wanted to depict a character who challenges societal norms while also taking control of her own narrative.
