Filmmaker’s statement

“I had a strong, strong desire to make this film.

I had a message I wanted to get out there, and it struck me that the best way to do that would be to get right to the point. Keep it tight. Keep it swift. Keep it moving. Don’t tell a story but set a tone and paint an experience.

That’s all I wanted to do with this film – everything I hadn’t done in the past.

I think it turned out alright.”
