JOSEPH is based on extensive research, interviews and published accounts. I use mainly primary and secondary sources to build the story. I have attempted to stick to the facts and avoid assumptions as much as possible, yet I may draw conclusions from the circumstantial evidence. Visual scenes have been created for the purposes of dramatization. This is a work of creative non-fiction inspired by true facts, physical evidence and historical research. In the end, this is my artistic interpretation and nothing more than that.
