How did you come about this project?
In this case, Jay’s book was my reference book for a film called Asad that we had done back in 2012 about Somalia. Jay’s book was the only book available that would give us reference for the movie. That movie went on to get award nom. We bought the rights to the book, sat down and interviewed Jay, we looked for a tall actor… - Bryan

Bryan sold it too. He talked about the Somali culture and the film Asad. It was really a chance to get to work with a different culture and get to see who they were and Bryan really made that a key thing and that’s what made me want to do it. - Evan
Challenging role. Challenging piece of work - Bryan
