Director’s statement

Marcus Matyas says:

“I am dedicated to my craft and ideals as a filmmaker and am always seeking to collaborate with other creative artists. The film Pinwheel was inspired by the idea that life is a series of spontaneous moments seamlessly stitched together.

Although we all pace through a daily routine, every minute of every hour offers something completely different from the previous.”
