Director Statement

Delving Into the concept of relationships, the effects they have, not only on the people around us, but on ourselves, through the lens of this 25 year old “self-seeking” woman gives us a sophisticated taste of the complexity of queerness, Identity, and love. 37 pages, written In 5 days, shot In 4, and released 4 months after the concept’s spark, I couldn’t be more proud of this beautiful whirlwind of Amanda’s reality.
