After contacting the cast, I carefully crafted different set of questions for each of the interviews.

Post Production
Post-production was super important here! don't forget that I separately asked questions to each one of the cast, hoping their stories would connect in the way I imagine they would And boom! Their stories were honest and powerful, I'm truly grateful for their trust... 
After the story was told and the picture locked I sent it to Simbai who create the most beautiful sound design with his own music. in the meantime Emmanuel and I shot some creative shots with ink on water in order to make it more immersive. 
It all worked out!
a lot to figure out here! First time getting my own work into festivals. The good thing is that ink therapy is already out there and so far it has four awards.
