Director Statement

Dixie is a short fiction film set in contemporary times.

It deals with the confusing time between teenage years and adulthood from the point of view of a LGBT character. This transitional period for a gay teenager is especially confusing, as besides dealing with general coming of age problems, he is also tasked to figure out how he fits in the gay scene.
The movie deals with when the fantastical meets reality in a vision like dream, that seemingly offers perhaps more questions than answers.
