Director’s Statement

Creating a captivating biographical film, particularly without a high-profile subject, poses the challenge of sustaining viewer engagement. Yet, after spending just a week with Irina, her compelling essence inspired a desire to replicate that connection in the film's storytelling.Irina's life narrative resonates with universal struggles—fighting for every achievement amid unconditional love, harsh fate, and ongoing challenges. Enduring physical abuse, losing affectionate family members, financial hardships, and workplace sexual abuse, Irina embodies the strength of a Siberian tiger and the kindness of a mother. Despite common stories of resilience, her unwavering commitment to good deeds sets her apart.To authentically convey Irina's complex story, the documentary adopts an honest approach, breaking the fourth wall and revealing glimpses of the filmmaking process. Irina's life unfolds straightforwardly, allowing viewers to focus on the profound narrative without distractions.The first impression as you watch is strong, powerful, and almost overwhelming. Then, as you start to get to know her- slowly taking one layer off at a time- you’re left with the same person you first met, but somehow you don’t see her as this overpowering personality anymore, rather a gentle and kind soul.As a Sicilian coming from a place where women’s voices are not always heard, throughout my life, I’ve tried to break this pattern and honor and respect women and their stories, and yet making this film made me realize how many biases I still have ingrained in me. After watching the documentary, the hope is that the audience reflects on their own biases and treatment of women, fostering positive changes for the benefit of all.
