My Loyal Audience
A sheltered teenage girl begins to suspect that her most personal, embarrassing thoughts may not be as private as she had hoped.
writer. director. actor.
At its core, My Loyal Audience is about the desperate lengths people go to protect each other from the truth, and the vulnerability that comes with being seen for who you truly are.
While I have always been obsessed with movies, I have realized over time that there are very few examples on the screen of a true experience of being a female in this world. The depictions of strong women protagonists were often impossibly strong and sometimes less easy to relate to than the ridiculously weak ones. They made the younger me want to be more like the character, and less like myself. This film embodies my strong desire to connect with a woman on screen; to share what the strangeness, uncertainty, and vulnerability of being a human being feels like, at least for me.
My Loyal Audience stemmed from my “moment of greatest shame,” and I hope that by sharing such a vulnerable experience through the magic of storytelling and comedy, others can laugh and relate and we will all feel a little more at peace.
