Director Statement

The world needs more conscientious creators (and critical consumers) of visual media. Therefore, I try to reflect Truth and Beauty in my creative work, while also instructing young aspiring filmmakers to do the same. FOUR-NINETY is my response to the lack of forgiveness that I see in the world around me, especially from many who claim that it is central to their beliefs.
