WHY I MAKE MOVIES


A good film can challenge us to live a more compassionate life by allowing us to see different perspectives that ultimately show us that we are all CONNECTED. As a child of immigrant parents and a woman of color I know how important it is to create films that shine a positive light on diverse and underrepresented communities in order to create powerful impact in our world. As someone diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis I believe it’s important to not take anything for granted and as a mother I know how important it is to tell stories to uplift the next generation. THAT is why I make movies.
