Director Statement

This film took a lot to make physically and emotionally. I started the project back in October 2022 with the goal to create a film that pushed the boundaries and studied the topics people would shun away from when usually creating movies and to encapsulate them in my perspective of what cinema and film is all about. In December 2022 the film was cancelled due to unforeseen family circumstances and I thought it was all lost which was a huge deep blow as I truly believed I had something special in the making. However many months later I got the original team back together and we finished what we started and all that I can say is that it was the best decision I've ever made.
