Director's statement

Co-writer, Valentina and I talked a lot about our love of experimenting with identity and how our identity has been influenced by other women and popular culture. We have dyed our hair every color of the rainbow, our wardrobes range from goth queen to pixie dream girl and we’ve traveled outside the confines of our conservative families. At our core, we are women who want to live by our own rules. Womanhood doesn’t come with a roadmap, just as Zula’s doesn’t. You make mistakes and run away from yourself before finding glimpses of truth. Growing up as a young woman, there’s often that one friend that you have some magnetic connection with, someone who teaches you the ropes. For Zula, it's Ramona, and there’s a very specific type of heartbreak when that kind of a friend breaks your trust. We wanted to capture that specific heartbreak, in terms of female friendship, as it is not explored to its fullest capacity in film.
