SYNOPSIS

Of folklore from an old world, a sisterhood haunts the deepest hollows of the forest. Lore calls them by one name... Wilis.

DIRECTOR STATEMENT
With Wilis, I strove for authenticity. I wanted to create an excerpt that was pin-point, but also vague, in hopes to create space enough to allow the audience to insert their own lives into the narrative. My hope is for discussion, and reflection, long after the credits roll.
