Personal Quote:

I think 'Shine of Rainbows' went to about 30 film festivals and was in competition in about half of them. It did very well in about 75 per cent, which tells me there is a craving for something decent and nice and wholesome, as opposed to bang bang bang, and a five-second attention span. See more »
