Director's Statement

ElsaGate is an investigation into an internet phenomenon where weird and distorted videos started appearing on YouTube Kids. I wanted to make this film because this relatively unexplained subject has always intrigued me. I would like to thank Dr.
Elizabeth Feigelson, Professor Suzanne Schulz and Principal Valerie Thomson for their support, and the Queens World Film Festival for inviting me to be a part of this event.

Director's Bio

Julian Green is graduating from Bard High School Early College in Spring, 2021, and will be attending Bennington College in the Fall. This is his first film.
