"I began making films as an art form because of the power they wielded. Film was a political tool used for change. I was influenced by the early filmmakers at the National Film Board [of Canada], like Norman McLaren, Donald Brittain, and Colin Low, and cinema vérité auteurs such as Frederick Wiseman."
