Director Statement

I believe strongly in this project. When Ms Brina Rabang approached me about her idea, I began storyboarding almost immediately. This project has inspired even me to embrace the indigenous branches in my own DNA. Every single indigenous woman and child missing from their families deserves an overwhelming voice to represent their cruel misplacement. We need to get them back home. I hope this film helps to further inspire just that.
