From the director: This film is extremely personal despite it being about a fictional woman who lived 3,000 years ago. It is about the first woman to experience abuse and degradation - Lilith. Her story is the first of many. She represents all the women who've been beaten down, abused, and degraded for daring to ask to be treated as equals, for simply existing. Lilith represents the divine dark feminine in many mythologies - the darkness that women must hold in their hearts after years of degradation by loved ones and strangers alike. In this story, the point of rage for her is Adam's betrayal. How could someone who is supposed to love her treat her so cruelly? How could he want her to be treated as less than? I created this film after experiencing a similar betrayal, and learning that we must create our own power in life. We must become demons if need be. I learned I would rather be a monster than let myself be treated as less than what I'm worth, and that's what this story is about. Finding the things we must destroy to survive, and finding the things about ourselves that are indestructible.
