Director Statement

At its core, Penny is an exploration of misunderstandings and consequences. Police misconduct and the shootings of unarmed African-American men has been the topic of endless political debate and the subject of countless films.

Penny tackles the subject through 3 encounters; Penny and Louise, Penny and the cops, and finally with the cops and Louise. The film aims to ask more questions than it answers about the roles and moral weight these characters carry for the end result.

What is evident is that fear plays a role in all 3 encounters. With Penny, we wanted to break the rules with how we structure the characters morally. By avoiding the cliche of a young angry black man with a rapsheet of priors resisting arrest against a one dimensional racist cop, we hope audiences are able to explore the situation beyond the stereotypical and superficial.

Penny is not a political film per se. It isn't taking a side. It is merely the exploration of how circumstances rooted in fear outside of a young man's control can have tragic consequences and how all of us as a society bare some weight for the world we have helped to shape.
