Director's statement

The Shiva List was inspired by an argument I had with one of my siblings a few years ago during a cross-country road trip. While the fight was raging, I found myself feeling like a young child, and it took all the power I had to not resort to acting like one. All I wanted to do was scream and throw things. Stuck in the car, with no easy escape and a time limit (the rental car was due back in five hours), we had it out. That fight and the resulting realization altered our relationship in an irreversible way, and I believe our sibling-hood is stronger than it has ever been as a result. Like no other medium, film has the power to bring these transformative moments to life and with The Shiva List, I intended to do just that. On the surface, this short film is shareable, relatable and action-packed. On a deeper level, it’s about the power our parents hold over us, the unique bond shared by siblings and how much it sucks to grow up.
