Director Statement

Snow for Water is a true story told me by a young woman from Sarajevo, who was a child during the infamous siege – the four years of war saw 1,620 children killed and more than 15,000 injured. This film is not only her story but the story of all children caught up in conflict, where ever they are in the world.
