Director's Statement

a man but I started reading with an open mind. After reading, I could immediately see myself directing it. Not only is it multicultural but it also bridges gender gaps, all while being somewhat playful and ridiculous. It was fun for me to build on visual references I had for this film. The Craft, Rosemary’s Baby and Marriage Story were all inspirations for me. I do feel very proud of this film and the message behind it and hope that it feels ca- thartic for women and it gets people talking.
