Director Statement

My most recent film, Dinner is Served, explores the relationship between a mother and daughter and the anxiety and awkwardness that precedes sharing a deep truth. I wrote it in response to a friend who wanted to share something deeply personal with their parents but did not know how. The intent was for the emotions presented in the film to be experienced as awkwardly as they would be in real life. The hope is that it was translated just as effectively on screen.
