Director Biography – Madison Stewart Leonard (FLUSH LOU)

C29e32d70d headshot

Madison Leonard wrote, produced and directed her first film, Flush Lou, which was a ploy to get her mom on camera. It worked but she had to agree to act alongside her. Raised in Connecticut as the youngest of four girls, Madison re-located to Los Angeles where she fails remarkably well at improvisation and performs stand-up comedy when forced.

Director Statement

Mournings can bring out the weird in people.

When my closest friend lost her father, a cigarette smokin’, Slivo drinkin’, no-filter Serbian, his sense of humor was inherited.

The jokes never stopped. I remember thinking – people are not allowed to laugh this much when someone dies.

This film became my experiment.
