This documentary embodies so much of the type of work I hope to make in my life. I look forward to contributing what I feel is an important narrative being dissected in the media right now. I’m grateful for the chance to work with such talented people who are helping to bring this documentary to life and tell a piece of my family’s story which reflects the unsaid story of many other families alike.

It has been a pleasure to support the creative vision for this piece, and I look forward to sharing it.

I’m looking forward to helping Kay tell such an important story about generational trauma, and its effects on daughters of mothers, and mothers of daughters.

I’m looking forward to working on this documentary because it offers a fresh and intriguing perspective on the familial nature of mental health, which is omnipresent but is still usually only discussed behind closed doors.
