Director Statement

Who Will Take Care of Me? is a project that means a considerable amount of things to me. Not only is it the culmination of my academic career, but it is also the end of a 5 month journey in which I got to meet and share many things with my cast.
Without them, this documentary and story couldn't have been told.
