Director Statement

Inspired by my love of action cinema and drag, I wrote and directed this short teaser. I wanted to combine the excitement of on-screen action with the flamboyance of drag which has led to the creation of Killer Heels.

Being a gay mixed race martial artist from South London, I wanted to create a film that reflects my community and features an authentic and diverse cast.

Through my experience of discrimination and prejudice towards ethnic minority LGBTQI+ people, I wanted to create a film that not only accurately portrays the community, but also helps change stereotypes.
