Ambassador’s Words

I am extremely delighted and honored to be part of this year’s SIWFF, where I can be with respected filmmakers and beloved films. I am already excited and happy at the thought of encountering great films. As an ambassador, I hope to contribute my strength, even if it is just a little, to bring the freedom that films offer closer to many people.
