Director Statement

Tracey Aivaz believes that societies highlight marriage and motherhood as more important than careers in women’s lives. Media have also been reinforcing these “standards” by mostly portraying men as the driving forces of societies while giving women the less influential roles—not even mentioning the embarrassingly low number of female directors.

She has discovered that her purpose in this world is not just to be somebody’s wife. Sure, becoming a wife and/or a mother are very honorable and special positions to hold, but women are not products of an assembly line and can go beyond the glass ceilings that have been imposed upon them. She plans to present women’s voices and visions that have not been represented much at all in cinema.

Furthermore, she likes to tell stories that express powerful ideas--films with deeper messages to connect with a wide audience. She likes to make films that would emphasize the importance of standing up and being stronger every time life knocks one down. Also, her passion in psychology and sociology inspires her to tell stories that involve issues that many face today--including stories that incorporate humanistic and environmentalist matters such as war, terrorism, genocides, and wildlife conservation that would strive to ameliorate society.

Highlighting lives of important figures of the past and present is another genre for bringing improvement in different fields. However, she would like tell all these stories in a narrative style with story features rather than documentary. Entertaining yet instructive; that is her motto.
