Director Statement

Collaborating with Jordan and producing a project that would document his transition was something we had both wanted to do for years. We felt it was important to document the early stages in his transition for ourselves, but also for people who are in a similar position to Jordan, hopefully, so they can find some sort of comfort or relation in the story.
I don’t know if this film is one which specifically represents the LGBTQ+ community but it tells a story of self-identity, one which most of us can relate to on some kind of level and how Jordan’s journey displays that.
