Director Statement

I strive to make films that inspire the imagination and stir the heart. As a filmmaker, I am curious about topics dealing with social justice and have an immense passion to tell stories of marginalized people. This true story of police brutality is incredibly near to me, and I feel this burning intensity inside me to bring awareness to this horrible tradition of tragedy.
