Director Statement

My goal is to create documentaries that tell the stories of people you don't hear about, refugees, the homeless, those fighting occupation, the ones portrayed in the media only as terrorists, people recognised in their work by international institutions but are still fighting for their homes or their land. Every time I apply for a documentary fund it states we want "character driven films" and yet so many films I see lack interesting characters. I pride myself on finding these characters, forming a great relationship, and through my observational style letting their personality tell the story. I want my audience to remember the person not just their circumstance, this way we can change the latter.
