Director Statement

I made Mr. Kiss as a way to show its viewers that we have issues on both sides of the spectrum and that without one another there is no whole to repair the deeper cuts in its skin. It's also a film about the importance of what America isn't - a get rich quick scheme or a welfare state. America is a country of "you get what you give and give what you get." She may not be perfect, and regardless of her youth, she's a face that's always led by the forefront with her solid foundations and tenacity to always improve despite the differences that make up her strengths. In a world of organized chaos, America is the country that's shown the world that, "you can't make an omelet without breaking some eggs."
