Director's Statement: After working as a film editor for over 25 years, I have reached a point in my career that I need to go further in making personal statements through film.  With the success of my first narrative short, Lunch in Lima, I know that writing and directing fulfill that dream.  Democracy in the Driver's Seat is based on a short story that my father wrote in the 1970's.  He believed that the democratic system could easily fall into blind mob rule, if the population didn’t take the responsibility of each individual seriously.  In today’s political climate that the time is right to bring his story to the screen, and a wider audience.
