Director's Statement

By the age of 15, I was running a brothel out of my Pottery Barn-clad room. I fooled around; sometimes because I wanted to, and other times because I felt obligated to. Desperate for connection, I relied on my relationship with men to guide me toward the foreign land of self-worth. A few urinary tract infections and a higher dose of B12 later, I realized I needed a break from my self-destructive persona. At 23, I know the value of my voice and am dedicated to making films that authentically represent the trials and triumphs of adolescence from the female point-of-view. Feeling Sexual tells the experience of a high school student Izzy, who is working to better understand herself and her relationship to men before she heads off to college. My hope is to empower more people to have conversations surrounding sexuality, female pleasure, and consent.

Director's Bio

From the moment Brooke realized she could make her Bratz dolls scissor, she knew she wanted to be a storyteller. Since graduating from the Film & Television Production program at the University of Southern California in 2018, she has had the pleasure of taking Boob Sweat around the festival circuit, as well as written, directed, and produced another short titled Feeling Sexual, which opened for Cooper Raiff’s Sh*thouse at The Ace DTLA. In quarantine, Brooke received funding for her next project from The Great Mark Duplass, and like all of her work, its purpose is to broaden the conversation surrounding gender, sexuality, and consent. Brooke currently lives in Los Angeles, but hopes to be reunited with her childhood psychiatrist Bruce in New York sooner than later.
