Director Statement

Hey y'all!
I made this film initially just for fun. I wanted to depict the difficulty of coming to terms with tragedy. It can feel easier to just shut out the world and act like nothing happened, but the best way to get better and to heal your mind, body, and soul is to look at the truth face to face and let it help you move forward. Reality is your friend. Sometimes it hurts- sometimes it's hard to get along with. But it is ultimately there to help you.
I hope this (super) short film helps convey that.
