Director Statement

Speaking as a young, female filmmaker, what’s pleased me the most about the project is how so many women came together throughout the making of the film.

This is a film I dedicate to my sister, to my mother or maybe to a woman like Lam that’s I have not yet met. This is a film for her, for Lam.
