When talking about her film, she said “I went to the shaman in 2014 with my mom. After the shaman’s ritual, I sat outside waiting for my mother. That time, i saw an young shaman who looks like 18 years old with earrings in his ear, tattoos on both arms. He had very cool style. That’s when the idea of making this film came. After writing my film script, i didn’t know who to approach and where to get funding. A film council was formed at that time, and many fortunate things happened at that time. Within five years, my dream came true.”
