HALYNA’S FRIEND POSTS TRIBUTE: ‘YOU DESERVE TO BE HERE’
A close friend of Halyna’s, writer and director Li Lu, posted a tribute on Instagram.
Lu claims the cinematographer previously hit out at producers on recent projects for acting “selfishly and dangerously.”
In a moving post, she wrote: “Halyna, you were one of the hardest working people that I have ever met.
“You loved cinema – completely and utterly. You were a friend and colleague. You were a great mom.
“The last time we spoke, you lamented how producers on recent projects acted selfishly and dangerously. How people who finance films thought their money could be traded for the decency, safety, and honor of all else on set.
“How often we tell ourselves to ‘buck up.’ Because we are tough. Because as women, we gotta show we can take it. Because we must sacrifice, to achieve our dreams.
“It’s not f***ing worth it. You deserve to be here. With your family.”
