Director Statement

In the spring of 2018, while editing my first short film THE CREEPING RITUAL, I had the privilege of watching Melvin Van Peebles' "Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song" (1971) on 35mm at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood.
I exited the theater under the influence of a new kind of cinema and an altered consciousness that now had three hard facts driven into its fabric:

#1- I was only using about 20% of my creative brain capacity in the editing process (compared to the 90-95% Van Peebles was using for "Sweetback").
#2 - I was free to make a film about whatever I wanted.
#3 - I was free to make a film however I wanted.

Desire Lines is that film - our latest contribution to independent cinema.

Enjoy.
