Marble Man

Marble Man is the story of a teenager who falls in love with a statue. Her love and delusion grow as she believes she can turn this statue back into a human being. After figuring out that she isn't the Pygmalion of her story (able to turn a statue into a person by simply wishing), she takes a darker turn into the readings of myths of young Greek and Roman women like herself.

Director Statement

Marble Man deals with the complexities of the theory that love is sacrifice. Especially, when you're a young woman. This film is a take on ancient and modern media where a woman sacrifices herself for the leading man's character growth. But what if we saw it from her perspective? And what if that leading man never learned his lesson? This short has a special place in my heart, as it was my first time directing. So, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it.
