Director Statement

As a part of the human race. I've grown fascinated, bewildered and afraid of what we can do as people. The endless possibilities of our creation and the magic the universe sets everyday. Leaving us confused and curious.
Yet cinema always found it way to give answers, string our tears with a piano cord and connect the sparkling space above with a tiny ant hole.
Films for me are simply life, death and the many dances we have in between.
