On her interest in 'Lizzie Borden':
One Halloween, years ago, I was out with a girlfriend, the painter Lily Ludlow, and she was in Victorian garb with a picture of an ax sewn onto the back of her jacket. I asked, 'Who are you?' and she said Lizzie Borden. I knew the nursery rhyme but didn’t know much else, so I started researching her. Quickly I discovered that there was a bed-and-breakfast in what used to be her house, and since my boyfriend at the time was from nearby in Massachusetts, I told him the next time we went up to visit we’d have to stay there. So we stayed at the bed-and-breakfast, and when you do that they give you this whole tour and tell you these stories to spook you, saying that 75 percent of guests leave in the middle of the night and things like that. And while I was there I thought, this story is captivating.

On what makes the Borden murders memorable:
It’s the way the myth has been perpetuated that she was this loner, and people identify with her in a way. And the crime was so violent. Also, anything unsolved is always interesting. There are so many theories about what really could have happened.

On if she is making a third short film:
There’s a third short, and then I have some ideas for a feature. But I need to sit down and write them. There are some books I’ve tried to option, but mostly other people beat me to them. Still, there’s some stuff churning that I’m trying to figure out how to articulate.
