Director Statement

I was watching a gangster film, whilst thinking of one of my favourite short films. It was then that I thought, 'why not stick them together!

Budget was small and the production process slow but we assembled an incredible cast who all had a love of the genre and a clear view of where we wanted to go with Wise Girl.
