I made a promise to myself. When I became a director, I promised myself I was going to be a “Director”. Not a “woman director”. Because of that promise, I have stayed away from what people tend to think of as “lady” projects.
This is different.
This is why I wanted to be a director in the first place. This is about kids and their futures. Now that I have a child, I approach the world a little differently. I want to help build a future where no one will ever have to limit her choices for fear of being painted into a corner.
The script is factual, but it’s also emotional and artistic – all the right elements to make a powerful piece of communication.
