I "I've been fascinated with film since I was a child and cannot express how amazing this process has been to be surrounded by my best friends AND to have been mentored by so many incredible artists who each brought an offering of their own creative capacity and generosity to the telling of this story, thank you."
I "I want to say a big thank you to my mum and all the mother's out there."
