    The biggest challenge but also the thing I cherish the most about my work as a documentary filmmaker is the constant need to stay curious: to look for stories, to talk to people, and the necessity to explore each topic I'm working on thoroughly. I'm grateful for this being my job and for the fact that people still want to share their intimacy with us, filmmakers.
