    It was an honor to have Land Of My Dreams premiere in Europe at the Political Video & Film Festival Carlota. In an era when larger, more glamorous festivals are preferring cinematic storytelling over political films, this festival is a significant platform for creators who are speaking truth to power and risking their careers to make these critical films. I am extremely grateful to the organizers for promoting such films and providing us with a platform and a chance to reach European audiences.
