Director Statement

I love using the arts for self-expression and storytelling. With Kenny, I wanted to incorporate a puppet into my film to help create a "slice of life" that illuminates teenage family dynamics. I'm grateful for the support of my cast and family, and I hope that audiences have as much fun watching it as I did creating it.
