Director Statement:

Crescite is the first professional film that I have made. It is a project that I have contemplated doing for many years. My goal with this film is to shine a light rather than to simply curse the darkness. Growing up in wine country the hard work of migrant farmworkers has always been very apparent to me. After witnessing how attitudes regarding immigration were being tainted with hateful rhetoric and paranoia, I felt the time was right to tell an inspirational story of growing together rather than apart.

The title of the film is from the Latin, "Crescite et multiplicamini" often translated as "Increase and multiply." These were the first words God ever spoke to mankind in the book of Genesis. Crescite can also take on the meaning of "come to be" or "grow." This stood out to me as the perfect title for a film that reveals how the Napa Valley is growing with its migrant farmworker population.

As immigration related challenges seem to divide us, I hope to inspire more human understanding, compassion, and gratitude to help combat the divisive vitriol that seems to be at every turn this election year.
