Director Statement

The Drive (2021) was shot during the pandemic, and hence, abided by social distancing rules, as it only involved one camera, two actors, and two crew members (me on everything and my little sister on sound). It tells the story of a couple going on two different road trips and how the couple’s relationship has “run out of gas” with the passage of time.
