FROM JEN: “I’m fascinated by human relationships, and I’m always trying to find new lenses to see us through, new ways of understanding our complexities. We are strange and mercurial; we live under shifting weather-systems of love and regret and jealousy and hope. Wink is a dark comedy with absurdist tendencies, but it seeks to cut to the heart of something authentic and true in how we long for and lose each other, how we recover and rebuild.”
