Director Statement

Twenty Years Later is a movie about friendship. I was fortunate to be able to make this movie surrounded by my real-life friends (both in the cast and the crew), and I think the feeling permeated the essence of the production. I'm very proud of Twenty Years Later, and I hope it continues to speak to audiences.
