Declaration

film director

“On the surface, Greener Grass is a comedy satirizing suburbia, but to us it’s a horror movie. […] Adults acting like petulant children, people in power unable to see past what’s right in front of them, and a desire permeating our country both politically and culturally to return to the ‘good old days.’ We felt that now, more than ever, was a great time to explore, not the people in power, but the polite society in this timeless suburbia with its roots in those aforementioned eras of economic prosperity and social conservatism.”
