Director Statement

Though a clear and direct metaphor for the struggles of motherhood, "Polyglottos" also aims to highlight the competitive nature of the creative world and an artist's ability to care for their own creations. The Mockingbird fends for her own life and the lives of her newborn chicks, as creators fend for their own ideas.
