Director Statement

Lorelei came about from a visceral need to create more dynamic and challenging roles for young women in film. Erika Edwards wrote this script in the summer of 2015 for she and her producing partner and fellow actress Kristi Ray to act opposite each other and stretch the boundaries of their generic industry typecast.

The characters were conceptualized through a curiosity, fascination, and empathy for the people existing in small Southern towns you drive through on your way to somewhere else. We wanted to bring awareness to the diverse and complex fabric of our shared human experience.

The film gives a voice to rural North Carolina as it explores a socioeconomic status that isn’t often represented in mainstream cinema. We feel people in North Carolina can relate and connect to these characters because, in a sense, they live right down the road from us. Perhaps more importantly, viewers in a distant country could catch a glimpse into what happens outside stereotypical depictions of “American” culture—Texan cowboys, posh uptown Manhattan socialites, or plastic Los Angeles reality stars.
