HANDi

handmade, human stories

About

"There are nearly [seven billion] people in the world. None of those people is an extra. They're all the leads of their own stories. They have to be given their due."
-Synecdoche, New York

The person next to you has a story. If you could see the world through their eyes for a moment or two, your heart would open up just a little more. With each story we tell, we hope to highlight what makes us human and show that we can all relate to each other in some way. We want to erase the lines that divide us so we can see each other clearly.

We are a team of filmmakers based in Downey, CA.

The name HANDi is synonymous with the prefix "handy" which is associated with a convenient and useful product. "Handy" also pertains to the hands and a handmade quality. Our philosophy is embedded in this single idea. Being handmade, we use whatever we can find on a shoestring budget and craft everything ourselves.
