I Wrote This For You is a film made out of necessity to express and create after a loss. I was a primary caregiver for my paternal grandmother for the last four years of her life. She supported me he whole life and I promised her on her death bed I’d make a feature film. A year and eight months later, I completed this film. We have a choice in life when we are met with challenges, we can let them overpower us or we can accept them and continue to move forward. It’s okay to not be okay. Perhaps through caring for others and ourselves, one day at a time, we can heal those gaps between us.
