I had a dream 35 years ago to make film.
But those kind of things can`t be made after a decision or a plan. It needed years to do something else. To live. To feel pain. To get three marvelous children of my own. To almost loose oneself in the demands or grey life.
And then when the dream has meters of dust above- miracles start to happen.
It needed one great filmmaker to jump into my life and so much courage and a bit of craziness, too. But here it is. I am so honored and proud of it: My first and the Only one: Beyond - a film made by Tim Andrews, me and my daughter being the crew.
