About the Production:
"A monster film exploring both loneliness and fear, 'Condition of the Heart' is, more than anything else, a drama. Inspired by recent American microbudget productions, we aim to continue to make independent, personal films with a small set of dedicated collaborators. Our intimate working style allows us the opportunities to explore and discover with full creative control. Following the success of 'Amy George,' 'Condition of the Heart' is the next step for us as filmmakers, developing both our skills as technicians and as storytellers, as well as focusing on Canadian landscapes and cultures." -- Yonah Lewis
