“This is the second film I have made with Vicky while she’s been in sanctuary. The first was right when she initially entered and we have maintained a friendship since that experience. While catching up with her, I started to notice just how mentally and emotionally taxing the last two years had been on her as time was passing and so we decided to start shooting again. Even though not much was happening in her life, that felt important to capture that inner experience of what happens after all the cameras and attention from the press. I can’t help but also admit that selfishly I just enjoy spending time with Vicky and this was an excuse to be with her and her kids, even though there was a camera between us.”
