About the Production:

“LILY & KAT was written in a transitional period in my life. That strange purgatory between college and the real world. I found myself frustrated at the realization that there was this whole world in front of me, yet there was little freedom to navigate it. I resolved to make this film about it. I channeled that anxiety into the character of Lily. She’s at a turning point in her life and the imminent departure of her best friend is a catalyst for that. I wanted to explore the struggle that comes with finding your place in the world.” — Micael Preysler
