Filmmaker’s statement

I put myself through film school by waitressing, so this film is really a purge of that latent and repressed period of my life. Anyone who has worked in service can relate I’m sure!

The film is about changing your perspective. It’s about finding a coping mechanism but, most importantly, it’s about developing a sense of humour within yourself. Life and people can be absurd so being able to have an inner chuckle can make anything bearable or, like Debbie, even lucrative.
