Director Statement

This film was made with budget of absolutely zero. I want to thank all of my classmates, friends, professors, family, and roommates who held my hand as I attempted (and happily succeeded) to create my most extensive documentary to date. I set out to understand my younger brother's brain, and I feel so lucky to have witnessed just a little piece of his psyche. Sam will attend Harvard University next year, and I could not be prouder.
