She says of herself that she likes to tell stories – accurately, creatively and with integrity. The context suggested by the featured characters in Brodsky's debut feature film raises the question: Does what she knows about storytelling derive from formal education or from a father who is fascinated by the sound of a carwash and a mother who savours the sound of waves on Lake Ontario?
