Director Statement

I wrote TRAP when I was 17, but I let the film find itself over five years of production. It constantly morphed as the real-life characters evolved before my eyes. The film mirrored real life as I was called as a key witness in a highly publicized murder trial.

The film mimics a drug experience in hopes of pushing past the simple articulations of linear narrative. In TRAP, the narrative is liquid and time is free. I prioritize emotion and mood over plot. The narrative isn’t traditional and the movie moves like poetry — trap poetry. I believe that movies should be, to some extent, undefinable. In this film I show the lowest depths of urban culture — from the inside-out, not the outside-in.
