About this submission
As a bisexual woman, I have grown up feeling incredibly invalidated and sexualized due to both my gender and sexuality. I wanted to make a film that romanticized queer femme relationships and gave agency back to queer women. I took inspiration both from my relationship with my own best friend and from eccentric historical figures I admire. Additionally, I wanted to flip the tropes of most queer Hollywood movies by allowing the modern couple's struggle to come together not surround coming out. In short: I told the story I wish I had while growing up.
