Director Statement

For those who have lived in New York City or have wanted to, “Then That Happened” is the real “Friends”. Only in NYC does it feel like 100 hundred things can happen in one day, yet luckily, by our sides, our best friends who are our chosen family, support us through these continual ups and downs, with laughs and alcohol.
I lived this life in my 20’s in NYC, where I learnt to be strong in the most vulnerable of times, while loving fiercely and working hard even when everything felt like it was all stacked up against me. Based on true stories, Then That Happened is the truth and comedy of trying to balance the constant struggle of juggling the unforeseen problems of life, while desperately trying to be a good person. Comedy ensues and tears will fall, but with your friends by your side encouraging you to be the best person you can be, what else can possibly go wrong?
Made with just $3000, best friends, laughs and a lot of passion... Then That Happened!
