Director Statement


This story explores “a western approach to mental health”.
Meant to be a period piece, set in the 1960s, the treatment of mental health portrayed in this story is still relevant today. The decision to make this a western film is to introduce a different character dynamic into the genre that tends to portray masculinity with trigger-happy gunslingers. I feel introducing mental health as a signature theme in this genre can broaden the sense of the classic hero.
