Director Statement

I am delighted to have made a film - it's a dream come true! It is an amazing feeling to see my thoughts on screen; a blessing and honour to be the voice of the voiceless; silent or silenced. This is a film for the people, I am happy that it is moving towards reaching their eyes and minds because that, to me, is a sound of change that's around the corner. I hope that more than loving The Inner Person, they LEARN from it! I'm grateful to each and everyone who assisted and supported me in making it this far; from its concept phase up to now. #TheInnerPerson!
