Director's statement

Director's statement

The story for Death in a Day rose from a long and mesmerizing dream of my unconscious self pondering in front of a lake inside which a group of masked men, standing just below the surface of water, looking back at me. Just a month later, my uncle was diagnosed liver cancer and passed away shortly after. Memories flooded back: how my uncle taught me how to swim, how he drowned himself in alcohol and growing up, seeing his family being torn apart. This film is dedicated to him, his family and all of those who struggled going through his long and painful death.
