Director's Statement:

"Bow To Your Prince was created as my graduating thesis project out of the Toronto Film School.

Prior to writing this story, I knew that I wanted the film to have an eerie-brooding feel. This led me to write an unconventional fairytale.

I have been around a lot of sickness my entire life so I channeled the idea of someone being put under a 'spell' as a form of sickness. From there I built characters around this 'sick' individual using a metaphorical approach. One character represents the illness itself, another character represents the role of society and the others are the loved ones-the bystanders-the most fragile.

After this was in place, I found it wasn't necessarily the sick individual I set out to explore, it was those in the presence of the illness. Being in the presence of illness allows true character to shine through...for better or for worse."
