I am very excited to be making my directorial debut with CLAUDETTE.
CLAUDETTE is a concise example of how a moment can change everything in your life, and how the decisions that you make in each moment can have a never-ending effect on what becomes of you. Claudette walks out of the story having made decisions that will certainly follow her wherever she goes, it's not our place to judge her decisions, but rather to go through the moments that led her to make the decisions she makes. The clarity of Alexander Cendese's script, the underlying tidal wave of tension that lies beneath its simple dialogue, is what attracts me to the telling of Claudette's story.
