Director Statement

The Rainbow is a symbol for many things, but in this film, it represents hope.
Hope that, one day (hopefully soon) these dark times will be behind us.
Hope that light and colour may once again fill our lives.
Just as the eponymous Rainbow-Man inspires hope in the people around him…
... it is my hope that this film can kindle hope in the hearts of those who watch it.
I hope🌈
