Director Statement

The Drive was inspired by an argument my best friend and I had while driving. Though we fight and bicker, at the end of the day we share a close unbreakable bond despite having opposite characteristics. I wanted this film to reveal a sense of love conquering the odds and the result of sacrificing pride and be able to show vulnerability. The Drive is a satirical reminder for the audience to try and see beyond the initial characters surface both in and outside of cinema
