Director Statement

I believe in stories.
Stories unite, stories renew faith, stories bring life and hope. They cross all boundaries, all cultures and all beliefs.
Stories bring change because stories shape people.
Today they are everywhere; between pages, between friends, on stage and on screen.
So if stories change people and it is people who change the world; then I want to be a story teller.
