“It will be made a Wasteland, parched and desolate before me. “

Wastelands and the character of Alice has been a story I have been waiting to tell for some years. A very personal story that exposes my own struggles, as well as struggles I have witnessed from people close to me.

A small but dedicated group of creatives help me tell this story, with their hard work the film is finished and waits its audience.
