As I left the party in my strapless black dress and uncomfortable shoes I had one thought: "Please dear gods let this be the beginning of my professional career, and NOT just the highlight of years of effort." I have had the same goal for twenty years: to make thought-provoking independent films that explore the complexities, frailties, and dichotomies of the human species.
