« Je rends un peu un hommage à ma famille et celles qui ne sont souvent pas représentées dans le cinéma québécois. Je veux montrer qu’on a des origines haïtiennes, mais aussi qu’on est des Québécois et qu’on fait, nous aussi, partie de la société. C’est simple, je représente un peu ce que je connais et ce qui est important pour moi. »
