Exposing the dark undercurrents of the rules, norms and technologies governing society is at the core of the work I do as a director. Topics such as the psychological price of social media and the impact of sexism in the workplace are treated with irony and the subtle humor inherent in the most effective satire.
Breaking rules is what I do best, whether it be writing in the voice of a dispossessed character or favoring long, static shots over the fast jump cuts that have become the norm in Hollywood. The idea is to encourage my viewers to break out of the preordained boxes they have allowed themselves to occupy.
As a strong-willed female director, I bring a unique perspective that is both tender and unabashedly bold. My voice is as courageous, outrageous and outlandish as that of any man. The difference is that I can speak to a universe of understanding that men can’t.
My palette is at times lush and beautiful; and at others stark and fraught. I focus on forms in the frame that others overlook, and I know how to arrange a shot to highlight subtext and innuendo. Like many of the directors I admire most, including Orson Welles, Alfred Hitchcock and Martin Scorsese, I rely on the power of imagery to tell my stories.
In an era dominated by instant gratification, when less is considered more—even though it is usually lacking in depth and texture—I offer a holistic approach to film and television, one that asks the question: “Where do we go from here?” And answers it with a full emotional, spiritual and physical journey.
