You know how they say artists perform their best, when they are at their worst? These trophies mean a lot to me, its taken almost a decade to get here…and its true, when my personal life was at its worst, my art thrived, it was/is my escape. I lost my dad when we began the shooting of KONA, my mom after that. During Disconnect and especially SUBIRA, my relationship was taking blow after blow, and a lot of misinformation was going round about it. It was a blessing to be able to be someone else, whose life was laid down as words on a script, whose outcome was certain. I think what I am trying to say is artists are human too, life happens to us, we love, we mourn, we make mistakes, and we do it all in front of a million and one eyes. This is very cliche to say, I know. But THANK YOU to you all, and for Art and Film for always being my escape, my alternate reality.
