Thank you

Dear Delphine,
Thank you for your comment and for taking the time to visit my website.
I will definitely be writing and sharing my thoughts on the importance of media; specifically visual media with the online community.
From H. to B. is a collaborative short film with two other filmmakers. It is the story of a pencil and how different lives are inter-connected via a pencil.
There are three stories which are connected through this pencil and us three filmmakers made 1 section each. My particular story revolves around migration, contrasting the beauty of life with the ugliness of racism and xenophobia, specifically focusing on the Netherlands.
Thank you once again for your message and looking forward to spending more time with the WP community.
Pooja
