Quote:
"I [...] want to be part of our communities seeing themselves on screen—the power of that can't be overestimated, especially when we have historically been excluded from the privilege of telling stories through cinema. To watch people, both Indigenous and not, go into a theatre and come out with their minds totally blown or transformed—I want to contribute to that."
