Director Statement

"At the Bottom" was made with the intention to look at my own mind and insecurities through the lens of another character. Depression and suicide has been a part of my own life, as I have lost a lot of people to them and almost lost myself. This film is a form of therapy and hopefully a form of awareness as well.
