Director Statement

This short film, even as a completely solo project, has convinced me that this is what I want to do forever. Sara and Dr. Margaret helped shaped my outlook on informative education through filmmaking. Sara's phenomenal body of work serves as a representation of the home, homelessness, and personal being as a concept through a relationship between each other. The research was eye-opening and heart-wrenching. I appreciate the opportunity to record Sara's exhibit and listen to her story. Dedicated to the people of Iran.
