Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico, but the disaster home away from home can be just as devastating. In our ever-so-connected world, an act of nature can easily disconnect us but can also show us what is truly important.
I decided to make a film that hit close to home. Having had been disconnected from my own family during Hurricane Irma, I felt a sense of helplessness. It had been the first time I had ever experienced a hurricane of this magnitude away from home. While I can't truly communicate what the people of Puerto must have felt when Maria hit, I can definitely tell you how it felt on the other side.
I urge everyone to continue to donate to Puerto Rico as they are still in need.
