Short Film (Drama)

a film by Sophia Watson (USA)

A young writer's life is mysteriously impacted through his writing about an innocent girl at your every day high school who falls prey to a handsome predator in a position of power after being bullied on social media and at school; if she can’t get out before it's too late, lives will come crashing down.

DIRECTOR’S BIO

Jenna Kanell delivered a TEDx Talk titled "A Bee Showed Me That Limits Are Lies" inspired by her vanguard short film "Bumblebees," which after its festival run has assisted in schools and festivals around the world to encourage dialogue on disabilities and compassion. She's directed and assistant directed other feature films, short films, commercials, and documentaries. She's also a union actor (in films such as "The Front Runner," "Terrifier," & "The Bye Bye Man,") and stunt performer who trains in Krav Maga. She's arguably proudest of teaching her cat to do tricks.
