Director Statement

Tell Me About Yourself is a film about loneliness, fear, and vulnerability. Ruth harbours thoughts and feelings she cannot imagine sharing with another person, yet she yearns for connection. It is the tension between believing you can never truly connect with another person, and the need to do just that, that this film explores.
