Director Statement

From ages 18 to 21 I was my great aunt's caretaker, and they were some of the hardest yet most beautiful years of my entire life. I have wanted to make art inspired by those times in honour of my aunt for years now, and the fact that I finally have and it has been received with the love that it has is a prize within itself. Thank you all for taking the time to watch this film and connect with our story.
