Director's statement

Director's statement

Marz is a love story in essence between two souls who long to be together but are separated by societal boundaries and fear of the “other.” I’m drawn to stories that go against the norms, especially in bringing to light the hopes and dreams of often undervalued cultures and communities. Using a rapper as the central character was important in targeting the youth, especially those who may be going through heartache or problems with their own sexuality, to let them know that they are not alone in their struggle.

Reviews

Throughout the film, themes of family, loss, and sexuality are interwoven to give us a different perspective of the world of hip-hop.
