Director Statement

At its heart, Offerings is about relationships and the things we must give up and give into for them to work. In that way, it is a love story. But at the same time, it delves into what we are willing to do for arbitrary gratification.

I always love telling stories about flawed people who crave human connection, whether or not they consciously want or deserve it. Putting ourselves up close with characters who may not deserve our sympathy forces us to reconsider the acts and attributes that we are unable to forgive in ourselves as well as in others.
