The Knot

The Knot is a psychological horror that follows a young woman’s journey to reconcile with her own past and ideals. Fighting a breakdown, she realizes she wasted her life striving for the attainment of self realization while never knowing her true self. Confined to the cage that is her studio apartment, she slowly descends into madness, traversing on the pathway of discovery in a quest to be comfortable in her own skin. In an increasingly obsessive effort, she confronts the persistent ghosts that haunt her, to finally face herself alone.

Director Statement

I’ve been a Script Supervisor for over a decade and The Knot is my Directorial debut. I met the writer, Cristine Chambers while working on Marvel’s Iron Fist and knew then and there, we had to make a film together. She offered me a selection of her short stories and I fell madly in love with this female driven piece. Making The Knot was an amazing and humbling experience which has given me the drive I needed to start making my own films.
