Director Statement

Ivy is not a 'coming out' story. Ivy's statement is about normalizing love. The character's conflict is not being in love with a girl, but with her best friend.

Ivy is a story about being in love at an age were we are clumsy, led by our desires and inexperience. Hopefully, learning from our mistakes.
