Director's Statement

Wishes was built from my mom-cam archive, that common well of annual birthday moments that derive their power collectively over time. This short film has evolved into a collaborative, feature-length documentary with teenage Adam. We will trace the transition of Adam from pre-pubescent Audrey to evolving-young-man Adam in an exploration of what characterizes “maleness” for today’s gender-redefining youth. Adam’s Apple anticipated release is 2023.
