Quite unexpectedly Brod Ludaka became my introduction to the film industry. While I was a final year student at the RITCS school of arts I decided to make a short film about average citizens dealing with an event during a significant moment in history. I chose Sarajevo 1992 for the challenges, complexities and human experience of the city in that time period. I traveled to the artistic heart of former Yugoslavia and stayed there for three months. The cast and crew was a melting pot of international talent who taught me so much. It was incredible to be put on the Oscars shortlist personally, and professionally speaking it launched my career.
