Director Statement

TRIPOLAR is about romantically involved couple dealing with a condition called "tripolar disorder."

Without giving too much away, tripolar disorder is a predicament which affects just about everyone who has ever been in a relationship. The reason it’s rarely identified is because in most cases its symptoms are too imperceptible to be diagnosed properly.

Our film describes a more extreme case.

I’m pretty sure everyone watching this will identify including those who choose to be in denial.

Enjoy!
