Keeper was an incredible challenge for me as a director. As I put together my team for the shoot, it became increasingly clear how many people are intimately connected to disability in ways one wouldn’t have assumed (for myself, my mom was involved in a traumatic accident when I was eight-years-old, forcing her to teach herself how to walk again). And so, capturing the characters' daily reality in as honest a way as possible, however uncomfortable, became a top priority of mine.
