Director Statement

I’m a Kosovan writer, director, and cinematographer. I was raised to always fight and find ways to always speak the truth out. I’ve been through war, I was a refugee — these experienced drove to capture moments and tell stories. Find the voice of so many people who although they scream and yell, their voice isn’t heard. My films are focused on social issues and human rights. This film is dedicated to so many people around the world who still have to live in the shadows while the rest of us enjoy the sunlight.
