Director Statement

I made "Sterling" in an attempt to examine how guilt can tear down even the seemingly strongest figures. Fear is often the greatest wall people can build against themselves, and seeing the long-term consequences of unresolved guilt creates a conflicted character who, bearing deeply human feelings, must react to his starkly inhuman actions. The discord between the two is precisely the emotion I aimed to capture in making "Sterling". I am beyond grateful to have had a cast and crew who matched my passion about this project and truly gave all of themselves to the storyβ€”this film would not be what it is without their extensive support and collaboration.
