Director Statement

"Brainwashed" focuses on Angie’s inner turmoil with her routine of shaving. I’ve actually found myself spouting off this rant in the past, so the ideas for Brainwashed come from a lot of my own personal frustrations with femininity and beauty standards. I wrote this with the hope of sarcastically shedding a little light on the ridiculous nature of the things women are expected to do to live up to current beauty standards and the effect it can have psychologically. I want women to be able to relate and say, “I can’t tell you how many times I’ve felt that way”.
