Director Statement

THE WHITE BOX comes from a very personal experience and expands to universal themes of life, death, loss, acceptance, hope and legacy. For such intimate themes I chose a symbolic and oneiric approach the audience is invited to add their own experiences to. THE WHITE BOX tells a story but it also leaves space for the audience to elaborate and keep thinking. It's possible you'll want to watch and re-watch it several times discovering something new about yourself at every replay.
