With “Alienated,” my intention was to take themes from our current zeitgeist and give them a twist, allowing the viewer to wonder who and what is causing our young woman to feel marginalized. I am extremely grateful to The COOL Cooperative, not only for choosing my screenplay, but for supporting emerging local talent with their Director’s Program. I could not have made this film without their support, along with that of our generous donors, as well as the actors and crew who gave their time and talents to this project.
