Director Statement

For me it was a great surprise to receive thanks from the deponents after each recording interview because, in my opinion, I should thank them. The potential strength of talking about their feelings is so great that people with huge personal issues in secret were relieved after entrusting their inner yearnings with me. We were sure we were on the right track. Today I thank you for all that these incredible people have done for me and for so many others as they open their hearts and feelings to a movie.
