Director Statement

'Silence' is a film which I first and foremost intend to make an audience think deeply about themselves and their own decisions. It was created with the intention to make the audience question their own moral standing in a survival situation, very apt in regards to the world and culture we currently live in that is dominated by a prominence of fear and existentialism. Of course though, what is of equal importance is that the audience enjoys the film...and I hope that rings just as true!
