'Stories are important to everyone, they teach us what we know and what we believe to be wrong or right. I care about making stories that create change, even in a small way. As long as an audience member goes away from watching my films with thoughts of the issues portrayed, then I feel I've accomplished as a filmmaker.' - Nathan
