Filmmaker’s statement

Cruxberry is a sci-fi avant garde short film intended to promote thought and discussion into humanity’s hope for the future.

As the film’s writer/director, there’s nothing I think sums up humanity better than its definition of humaneness. I think the message of kindness is one that is so important yet so underrated that it needs to be spread.

If that is the only message that audiences take away from this film I would be happy but if they also take away the courage to question their own prejudices, to stand away from the crowd when they feel something isn’t right … I would die happy.
