Director Statement

Having to deal with this issue that I had has been dragging way too long, It didn't hit me back then but as time goes by I can feel it piling up slowly, creeping up on me from afar. Sometimes right in front of me, reminding me that it's still here. It's been six years and I think it's time to say goodbye and move on already.

Everything is a self-reflection after all. It's just a matter of how we take it in and turn it into something meaningful. Creating this film is a reminder to myself that I've at least tried to create something out of it and I'm glad enough to show you.
