Director Statement

“Red” is a film about empowerment, communication, and consent. I was honored to work alongside writer/star Phoebe Dunn to explore the often misrepresented role of female and female identifying sexuality in the BDSM culture. Through this piece we strive to remove the taboo associated with desire and provide an example of how having pride and communicating your sexual preferences leads to successful relationships and empowers others to do the same.
