Director Statement

Confidant was inspired by a friend’s grief over the loss of his mother, with whom he had shared an apartment within her later years. I had wanted to work with Eve Austin and Eddie McGee and put this tale together to tell the story of Momma Ragu with friends that I love.
I hope it touches people.
