Director Statement

For years I always thought about directing a project that involved materialism and the expectations that society puts on us all. I used to watch documentaries on hoarder syndrome and was astounded by how these people lived as well as sympathy for the subjects of the show. How trauma presents itself was saddening but intriguing.

For this film, alongside showing the extent of hoarderism, I wanted to question whether society should judge these people so harshly. Unlike other films I saw about this subject, I wanted to present Diana in a better light. She is just like all of us, but unfortunately where we may be able to hide the consequences of our traumas, hers are on full display. I wanted to question why we think it's wrong for people to live this way, but also show consequences of materialism and the sad reality of how many hoarders risk their lives to keep hold of their belongings.
