Director’s Vision for ‘Sorry You Have to See This’

SORRY YOU HAVE TO SEE THIS was the most difficult story I’ve ever tried to tell. Largely inspired by my battle with anxiety and depression, this film forced me to confront a part of my life that I usually try to hide from others. Years ago, thoughts in my head were hell-bent on convincing me that I would only ever hurt and burden the people I love. Memories from that time have felt overwhelming and heartbreaking – often tainted by broken relationships and lost hope – but this film has become an act of resistance and healing for me. I wanted to reflect my journey through messy, complicated people, and the result is a piece that is part-worst nightmare and part-saving grace. It’s an imperfect, heart-on-my-sleeve attempt to show people that they’re not alone, even in their worst moments.
