Director Statement

Lah Di Dah I started writing in lockdown 2020 and it was shot in May 2021 with the 3 of us, Joe, David and I. It’s a personal story, as I grew frustrated not being able to see my Dad in a care home during Covid. My Dad unfortunately died and I had a mental breakdown. I really struggled to put this film together for many reasons but it’s a tribute to him.
