Director Statement

This film is a nightmare personified. I have been looking to make a film about money and it’s psychological effect on humans. This, like all my previous films, is surreal in form but discusses a real social issue. In this case, the goal was to mask desperation with the character of a calm but paranoid woman. By using the 1:1 aspect ratio, I aim to use the frame of the film as a tool not a template, to tell this story of greed like a slow presentation.
