"I think every film becomes itself. It has its own journey. You make it and then the rest of the world will see what happens with it." -- from, November 30, 2015


"I always feel that when you finish a movie it’s always great to finish it with a bit of energy at the end, so that it gives people something to talk about. If you conclude the film too much in the film itself, it’s all answered. You want the audience to finish the film on their own." -- from, November 30, 2015
