Director Statement

Leftovers resulted from a long series of imagining "what if" for various situations. I wanted "Leftovers" to feel off-the-wall, unpredictable, and cartoonish while still retaining an element of humanity that can convey deeper meanings. To me, "Leftovers" is about more than unlimited pasta- it's about keeping your head above water in a world that feels like it's working against the greater good.
