Director Statement

This project was funded through Kickstarter, and I am so grateful to all of the backers who helped make this project a reality. We were also extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to develop partnerships with many individuals and organizations in both East Central Florida and Puerto Rico throughout the production of this film, who contributed their time and interviews. My goal was to highlight connections through the making of this film, and the generosity of our donors and interviewees made that possible. COVID-19 presented some challenges, of course, but they pale in comparison to the rewarding outcomes I have consistently experienced throughout this film's creation.
