Director Statement

Someone once told me that I was very suited for the 'Social Realism' subgenre type and I agree. The kind of stories that I want to tell is somewhat gritty and violent, not always leaning onto conventional tropes of story structure and charterer's archetype. The best kind of film for me is the one that suits to the ever-changing capitalist, violent, and grey world... Which, sometimes, can be really cruel for people to bear it.
