[ DIRECTOR, EDITOR, SCREENWRITER, PRODUCER ]
"His film immediately stood out as ambitious, original, and full of vision... In my experience as a programmer (previously I was at the Tribeca Film Festival), films that provoke long discussions, as Popolo did, are indicative of a filmmaker who has much to say, and the boldness to say it directly and without fear. Edo has a natural talent for visual storytelling, and while he has not been to film school and is self-taught, he has the tenacity and drives to become a notable director in the film and television industry "
- Roya Rastegar, Director of Programming LA Film Festival
"He deserves all the support in continuing to hone his craft such that he can channel his fearlessness in effective and impactful ways. It will be fearless filmmakers like him who will define diversity in the future..."
- Taylour Chang, Director of Doris Duke Theater - Honolulu Museum of Art
