Drama/Suspense. At a remote lake house, a filmmaker plays a calculated game of desire and jealousy in the pursuit of a work of art that blurs the boundaries between autobiography and invention. BLACK BEAR premiered at 2020 Sundance Film Festival. 

Director’s Statement.
My subconscious created BLACK BEAR over a 4-month period in 2017.  The script seemed to write itself.  I had no plan for it, no idea what it was about until I had finished writing it.  I’d be lying if I said the meaning of the script’s content was entirely clear to me now.  My best guess is that BLACK BEAR stands as a long, hard look at my own complicity in the state of the world, at the ways I have hurt those around me in pursuit of my own selfish desires.  BLCAK BEAR depicts characters wrestling with their inner demons, but the film also suggests that even in life’s most challenging moments there is wit and joyfulness.  The film is a reminder that the power to creatively reconstruct that ailing world is within us, if we are brave enough to stare down the bear at the door.
