Director’s Statement

“Out” reminds us that abstract science ideas can have deeply human consequences and resonance when it comes to infections, treatments, and vaccines. It evokes just how intimately and emotionally this isolation can affect us — and just how powerful familial love can be, making difficult choices even more heart-rending and reminding us just what is at stake. The feeling of “aloneness” compelled me to pursue this story.
