In early May, my team and I went to Switzerland to shoot my new project, a drama film about childhood and grief, following the story of an eight year old kid who helps his mother go through the loss of her own mother all the while struggling with depression.

The film is produced by Tiziana Giammarino, a Swiss-American indie film producer and screenwriter establshed in Los Angeles, CA. She was determined to go back to her sources with Resilience and found the perfect place for me to transform her story into a film. We were also lucky to work with such talented actors, Jesse and Justine whom you will see in the pictures below.

I was once more accompanied by my filmmaking team, my wife and production designer Laura Katz, my director of photography Maria Lis, Etienne our sound engineer (and actually part time gaffer) as well as Aranya Singh, our camera assistant.
