Director Biography - Ryan Farr

A fresh graduate of UniSA's film and television course, I've always leaned to making creative things. I often write and direct, focusing on the minutia found in life's endless detail. I start there, and write around that - that's how I inject personality in what I make.

Director Statement

I pissed on a cockroach in the toilet and it made me feel bad, so I made a film about it.

We've all experienced the imposing comfort of getting stuck doing something you loathe. This film is my take on those experiences and breaking free from those shackles.
