Yes. But it is more important than ever.
What do you want people to learn from your films? What can you do that they won’t do?
We can’t say anything about those because they’re under wraps. And we wouldn’t want to reveal what we want.
There’s been talk of the film being part of a film festival. Anything you can share about that?
