Director Statement

As we enter into this new century, I’m once and again surprised at the quick pace the World is changing as it incorporates technologies and modifies old structures to become a new World. I find it urgent that cinema turns its lens on the reasons and instruments through which violence becomes systematised and millions of people become excluded.
