Director Statement

It was such an honor working with this nearly all female cast and crew, many of whom I have worked with several times before, and will continue to do so in the future. We support each other, and the whole is greater than sum of our parts. This film is very special to me as it was born out of a real conversation I had with my writer and co-producer Jen. The crux of the matter being that how we see ourselves is often very different from how others perceive us, and if we could only see ourselves through someone else’s eyes, we would see how special we truly are.
