Filmmaker’s statement

I loved working on this piece with two phenomenal actors and an amazing crew.

Tuesdays & Thursdays is a film that says a lot about the importance of self-love and self-respect in an impossibly complex family situation. Not only a short film, Tuesdays & Thursdays is also a small piece of a larger body of work – an anthology of short films called Samanthology produced by Without a Flock Films.
