Director Statement

Dodie Goes Boom Boom is my attempt to speculate on how a child would potentially cope in a bizarre and surreal moment in human history. It seems we are all so disconnected in a world fueled by technology, but when everyone is forced to be isolated, people tend to seek out human connection and a purpose. Thank you for your time and consideration.
