Director Statement

I wrote this movie as a way of getting over high school. The unneeded pressures to do good at math, and to be the kind of person I was expected to be by others. In reflection a lot of it was absurd. In my exams I would find myself floating away. To somewhere I actually wanted to be. This is my attempt at expressing what it was like to be a queer artist growing up in Rural Australia.
