DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT

My first film as writer and director​, Five O'Clock Shadow, comes from a very personal place as an Indian-American mother. The story came to me ​on the morning after the Kansas shooting of two South Asian men. It shocked the community and made headlines all over the world. As the mother of a young man who has a beard, my first thought went to him and his safety. Never in the thirty years of my life in the U.S. did I feel threatened in this way. I simply had to say something about it. And so the story was born.
