    Director Statement

     

    The subject matter that Listen To Me deals with is particularly personal to me. The motivation to make a short film about domestic violence comes from things I have witnessed people do and stories I’ve had shared with me from both friends and family. I’ve always questioned, and where safe to do so, challenged the actions of those who feel its completely acceptable to control somebody’s life through fear and isolation. Listen To Me is an opportunity to not only answer questions but to raise more of them. My intentions as a writer/director was to engage audiences in a delicate subject matter not only through the characters but by connecting with them organically by relating the films technology to the voyeuristic experience of eavesdropping and explore deeper into the psychological aspects of abuse.
