Director Statement

An emotionally tormented story, Seeing Red captures moments of violence, sex, desires, love and lust through experimental filmmaking. A mixed genre of arthouse and horror, we see the mind of a vulnerable, unstable woman who explores her sexuality on a morbid sensual journey. The passion for telling this story relies on how I see myself as a woman. As this story is based on very unfortunate events in my life, the journey of how I see and express myself sexually has come a long way.

The event that took place in my life I was naive and young, I was blinded by how mistreated I was in an abusive relationship. My first sexual encounter was not consensual. I remember the confusion I felt afterwards. Thinking that someone that loved you would abuse you this way.

Seeing Red captures the rawness of this twisted, emotional journey. This film depicts a strong female protagonist who explores her sexuality on a large and morbid scale. This feminist journey has made me a stronger and confident woman and I hope that sharing this personal experience of mine will encourage other women of abuse to explore their sensual self without feeling shamed.
