Director’s statement

Doris Cheung-Joseph says:

“As a filmmaker I am drawn to stories about the human condition so I thought Vintage, written by the talented Chris McLeod, was the perfect script for me. Vintage is a coming-of-age film where themes about excess, attempted suicide, growing up and growing apart are interwoven to paint a picture of self realization and loathing in the lives of two young woman, Shawn and Nicole.

The super-talented actors, Meghan Kinsley (Shawn) and Olivia Keane (Nicole) were up for anything and everything and they were amazing to work with. I was also very lucky to have a talented and committed crew to support us.

Vintage is my first attempt at exploring emotional and personal themes. I hope you enjoy it. Please feel free to send feedback to dorischeungjoseph@gmail.com.”
