Director Statement

I am so incredibly excited that we are finally able to present the true story of the MGirls to the world! Making this short was one of the most fulfilling, exhausting, and incredible experiences and I'm so happy I was able to do it with my partner in creativity, Giovana. I hope everyone can feel the joy, love, and hardships of these four girls as fiercely as we did when we wrote the script and made this short. We're incredibly proud and excited to see what comes next!
