Director's Statement

I wrote, directed and acted in this film in 2019 after being prompted to write a holiday film by colleagues Sica-Wood productions and decided to write an interfaith story about the merging of holidays through the eyes of an innocent child to explain the miracles of lights we call Chanukkah in the most simplified way. Inspired by my granddaughter who was very intrigued by the celebration. We need family friendly films in these times and this was the right time for it’s release to the festival circuit. Praise be to God for the download. We thank you from the 8 Days of Lights Team!
