Ugly. Unworthy. Unlovable. These words burn inside us, whether they possess any truth or not, turning to ashes every semblance of self-worth we own. For some, it’s enough to recognize the strength within themselves to prevent true psychological destruction; however, for others, there’s no escaping the voices that creep in to tear us down. In the case of comedian/actress/performer Charlene deGuzman, this leads her down a path of love and sex addiction in an attempt to drive away those words and fill in the void within herself. Drawing inspiration from her own journey of recapturing her agency, deGuzman, in conjunction with Sarah Adina Smith (Buster’s Mal Heart) and Mark Duplass ("Togetherness"), co-wrote the script for "Unlovable" to tell the tale of one woman’s painful fall and triumphant rise.
