“It was incredibly rewarding to witness Diya’s growing interest in filmmaking, evolving clarity around the story she wanted to share and emerging confidence in her own voice. Diya’s life experience is special, as she lives in a way we could all aspire to. She shows us that it is possible to live a modern life with a small ecological footprint and with respect to the natural world on which we all depend.”
