Director Biography - Kristy
I am a student filmmaker from Pretoria, South Africa. I will be studying Cinema and Media Arts at Biola University in La Mirada, California.
What inspired me to start making films was my passion to tell stories and to spread the love of Christ in unique ways!

Director Statement
“Let the Ground Rest” was a short film that I made in 2020 for my school's annual film festival. I remember hearing this song for the first time and immediately knew that I wanted to tell a story with it.
The scripture that inspired this film was Mark 4:26, the Parable of the Growing Seed:
“He also said, “This is what the kingdom of God is like. A man scatters seed on the ground. Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how. All by itself the soil produces grain—first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head. As soon as the grain is ripe, he puts the sickle to it, because the harvest has come.”
My prayer is that this film will be an encouragement to those of you who are in a season of waiting. While things seem stagnant, don’t lose hope. God uses seasons of waiting to teach us patience and make us more like Himself. When dreams are delayed, we can trust that God is producing perseverance and steadfastness in us through our waiting. He is a good Father, and He is working behind the scenes, watering our seeds, even when we can’t see it!
