Director’s Statement

Passages is the autobiographical story of the catastrophic birth of my first daughter Fiona that found herself fighting for survival because of a lack of adequate medical support.  Revendication, denounciation and education were for me the key words while I was making this film.  Because no one should experience the trauma that we had to go through.
