Director's statement

Director's statement

KAREN was my first narrative film in film school. This film explores themes of identity and making difficult choices - something I enjoy exploring in film. Coming from a conservative household, I always felt like I had to rebel to be heard or noticed. I think this film, in a way, is looking at all the things that could have gone wrong that didn't. But at the same time, this film explores who each of us end up becoming because of our environment. Often times, when we see people do certain things, we don't question what led them to make that choice or what their home life was like. I was only allowed to make this film in 6 minutes, but I wish I had more time. I would have loved to explore more of the psychology of the protagonist and dive into the lives of grandmother and Khaled.
