Producer, Director, Cinematographer, Editor

Based on a short story by Nicole Krauss.

I cried the first time I read Krauss’ short story, and I knew right there I would make it into a film. Although this is one of the first films I produced in high school, I worked diligently over the course of nine months, stringing together ad-hoc shoots with my friends-turned-actors to get all the shots. Watching the opening sequence in black and white paired with the Moonlight Sonata for the first time remains a memorable moment in my filmmaking career because I felt that I had finally brought this powerful story to life.
