Director Statement

I wanted to make a Film Noir about a character struggling to move beyond grief and looking for some form of justice in the world. Like most male directors often do, I projected myself into making the lead a man, but once the script was completed, I decided on changing the first name, and making the protagonist a woman without editing the script. At first this felt counter-intuitive, but it actually allowed me not to apply any preconceived gender filter to the character and truly make her unique as she is portrayed so powerfully by Natalie Krill.
