Director Statement

Staying true to who I am has always been essential to my storytelling. I often write my characters with pieces of my personality embedded into their psyche. However, I cannot say that is the case for the characters in Hath No Fury. Heather and Peter are stronger than I could ever imagine myself to be. In their afterlife, both have struggled with accepting the things they cannot control and finding peace within the unknown.

The Idea for Hath No Fury came during one of my late-night death scrolls on TikTok. Over a year ago, I became angry at a growing media trend. Users recorded fake Facetime conversations for women to play if they felt unsafe in rideshares. Passengers would play the recording on speaker, which entails asking where the passenger is and asking them to drop their location off. This would hopefully sway the driver into not harming who was in their car. I was saddened that the probability of someone needing this recording was relatively high. Upon further research, I found a growing rate of women assaulted or kidnapped by their drivers. Heather’s story started here.

Something important to me, even in the early development of Hath No Fury, was making sure that this film was solely about Heather and her journey to regain her control and finally decide for herself what she wanted her journey to look like. To do this, I made it clear during production that the film’s antagonist, The Driver, should not have much screen time. I did not want the audience to humanize him. This is something that I feel Hollywood has normalized, and it is wrong. Most times, the media tries to find reasons as to why bad people do what they do. As a result, they paint the bad guys in films as misunderstood or troubled. While that may be true in some cases, I find it demoralizing to the victims and whomever they leave behind. Hath No Fury carefully displays a challenging situation without much violence but still serves as a gentle reminder that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.
