Director Statement

Like most children, I was fascinated with fairy tales and I still believe there’s a part of me in every character. Many modern-day fairy tales have lifted the lid on fantasy, revealing the wicked narratives hidden in literature’s fabled legends. In line with most traditional fairy tales, Sweet Tooth is a cautionary tale - this time aimed at the adult generation with a logical narrative that mimics the parallels of our real lives and the dangers of greed and control. Sweet Tooth is a coming-of-age drama with a vengeful twist on budding feminine power.
