Filmmaker’s statement

When I first read Crazy Love, it struck me as something powerful. Something resonant and profound.

As a director, it told me a story ripe for visual expression. It displayed an intense emotional journey of a woman finding her independence in a trial by fire.

The narrative resists the urge to be one dimensional in terms of Sam’s own exploration of her thoughts and feelings, giving her a conflicted character that comes across as profoundly human. In trying to be everything to everyone, she ends up a stranger to herself. It was this duality that ultimately drew me to the project.
