Director's Statement

I first met Louie when I unsuspectingly wandered into his antique shop and fell down the rabbit hole. Two years later, I’ve emerged with two films in tow: Louie’s Antiques and another fiction short in progress. I usually go into making films with a plan and a vision, so it was a joyful experience to follow my instincts, play, and see what bubbled up. Louie quickly became my unlikely muse. Unfortunately, due to rising rents in our small city of Northampton, MA, Louie was recently forced to close his shop after thirty-eight years. The magical portal has closed. Each viewing is a peek through the peephole.
