Director Statement

Eagle Rock is the story of how a young woman in prison for murder came to be there. It's the story of her coming of age amidst the social unrest of the late 1960s, and her search for a better life. It came about with a fascination with cult leaders such as Charles Manson, Jim Jones and David Koresh, and a desire to understand the young women who fell into their orbit. While I've never been in such a position myself, I understand the loneliness, isolation and desire to be loved. In telling this story, I hope that I can be truthful to what these women experienced. For me, it's a story about growing up, about being young and falling in love for the first time and about finding your way.
