Filmmaker’s statement

It was over a random coffee meeting that my friend and fellow filmmaker Clara Altimas and I agreed we should work on a film together.

I pitched to her the idea of a quirky character piece where a struggle for power ensues. A few days later, she sent me the script for Walter. Of course, I loved it. It has become one of my favourite projects to date.

I owe immense gratitude to everyone who helped me bring it to life, but especially Matthew Gouveia and Allison Busner whose performances left us all gasping for air.
