Director Statement

The Session was created by my sister and myself after having had many conversations about the notion that women are not funny. To help dispel this notion we created a film that showcases funny women.
This film is also special to me because while directing the film I was pregnant with my first daughter, I have since had a second daughter. It is important to me that they are brought up in a world surrounded by strong, funny, compassionate women and men. In a world that views both sexes as funny and equal. This film has been a way for me to contribute to that world.
