Artist’s Statement:

Another personal story for me, Zeide is based on a true story. My grandfather was an incredibly proud man who lost everything at the end of his life. He ended up taking his own life in the hospital, and my mother always felt this self imposed guilt about not being able to prevent his death. “If I had only gotten there sooner,” she’d say over and over. I made this movie to show her that it didn’t matter if she’d left earlier. It was his time and he’s with his love now.
