Director Statement

This film was inspired by a childhood fear that I still have today. One night, I dreamt in black and white for the first time, and it took place in a park, as I began to hear voices and objects moving without any visible force. Writing, Acting and Directing this film helped me cope with the dream itself, but darkness…that is an ongoing fight, that I hope to overcome one day.
