Turn off the Gas hinges on a real couple, in all their lovemaking, bickering, breaking up, jealousy, getting back together and traces the silver lining that exists in humanity’s ability to move towards love.  When that’s shattered by the gunman, its a reflection of real life, tragically.

The overarching theme of Turn Off The Gas is the fragility and uncertainty of life. My hope is to create something that confronts human nature, violence, and the attacks on humanity in contemporary society. The film project is meant to raise awareness of gun violence and the impact of recent attacks on our psyche, our future and our sense of humanity.

shooting dates May 12th and May 18, May 19
