Director's statement

Director's statement

“Iconoclast” asks how an African-American, Jewish, gay teenager can discover who he is outside of these identities. Being myself mixed-race (African-American-Jewish and white) and a member of the LGBTQ community, I pulled from challenges I've faced myself for the screenplay and worked on bringing it to life. This story is a foray into the unconscious ways in which we hold ourselves back from embracing who we are. Today, many people's identities no longer fit into a single box, and individuals of multiple diverse backgrounds can face overwhelming pressure to fit into one of those boxes. "Iconoclast" addresses the fundamental human need to be recognized for who we are, without being limited by preconceived notions of identity. I had an incredible time collaborating with the cast and crew to build the world and look of this film and am overjoyed to be able to share it with you.

Reviews

Sharp, striking and fast paced this 6.00 min short is memorable for its warped visual reality. Haney draws upon Lewis Carroll’s “Through the Looking Glass” and creates a deeply touching film about feeling trapped behind the glass of a self that you no longer recognise.
