Winner! Grand Jury Award, Narrative Feature -- 2022 Florida Film Festival
A Florida Film Festival favorite returns to the big screen!
Wallflower Lennon Gates (Sylvie Mix) yearns for access to the inner sanctum of the underground music scene in Columbus, Ohio. When she creates a podcast to interview the local artists she adores, Lennon discovers her own musical ambitions, develops a fast friendship with the striking, confident performer Bobbi Kitten, and in the process creates an identity not wholly her own. Soon, Lennon’s aspirations, with some constructive coaxing from Bobbi to find her voice, lead her down a path of dark obsession.
USA, 2021, 87 minutes, Directed by Ori Sagev and Noah Dixon
“Spiky, funny, feverish, and more than a little nail-biting.”– Kate Erbland, INDIEWIRE
