Filmography   

filmmaker's note
As a storyteller , it is important to me to create films that everyone can relate to.The New Mother is a universal story about life, love, sacrifice, and ultimately understanding regarding the role reversal that happens as our parents grow older. The New Mother is becoming a movement where both men and women can express their thoughts and feelings as caregivers for the first time. By creating a silent film, the personal experiences of the audience become a part of a universal narrative.
