Director Statement

As a child my personal hero was my grandfather. He was a large influence in my life, and I believe I inherited some storytelling abilities from him. He would always take me on drives in his antique cars to tell me all kinds of stories. He was a large inspiration for the look of the film and the time period. From there I knew I wanted to make a historical drama that was still relevant and could make a statement today. Many of my friends are in interracial relationships in Virginia, and I can still see how in 2017 they struggle. I knew we had to send a message out through an entertaining piece of history and I hope you enjoy it!
