Director Statement

KM: I love art that feels personal. I also love when fantastical stories are, at their heart, just about the relationship between two people. So when it came to this project, I wanted it to always be, at the forefront, just about these two people and this relationship that had become so twisted. Jeremy and I talked a lot about all of the layers that can exist in a relationship, and how the extreme sides of love and hate can — and do — coexist. How can we hate someone we love? How can we love someone who hurts us?

JS: I always tend to lean towards thing that are darker and where the characters actions have consequences. As soon as Katie brought this project to me I was enamored with the idea of these two and what would happen to them and to their relationship. Wrapping any sort of drama up in a mystical and other-wordly element is my favorite way to make my films speak to the human condition and what we all go through. This script and this film are the perfect balance of character study getting interrupted by something that we cannot control, which I tend to think is what life sometimes feels like. When things happen and they spiral, it can feel like there is some curse hanging over us and so this film explores what that could be like if it was literal.
