Myles is always a brilliant actor. I felt the pain of both the loss and the frustration with the speech impediment. Very beautiful film."

Director Statement:

'Remember To Breathe In The Dark' was inspired by personal experiences, but the story and struggle is far from what I actually went through. It's very intentional with how personal it feels, like you're peeking into the privacy of a Young man in a dark place. I dedicated this piece to my late father, to anyone who has lost a parent or loved one and those with speech impediments. This process became sort of like therapy for me, having a space to express my internal feelings about parental death. I hope this film remind's someone in any dark moment, to focus on the light.
