    Hello Christina, thank you for your kind words. It is an honor for us to share your film with us. We will be looking forward to your new films and projects.

  • I'm so blessed and honored to have received such an honor and to be highly acclimated for my short. Words can't describe how much it means to spread awareness of the brutal and raw reality we face today as humanity within the justice system. I look forward to keep moving towards my goals and further successes.
