Director Statement

This documentary is extremely personal as it follows a day in my own life during isolation due to coronavirus in June 2020. This was a highly emotional day as I watched the George Floyd funeral and then had to teach improv "comedy" on zoom with a brave face. I take comfort in my special pal, Oliver. Thank you for watching.
