This low-budget indie has more to offer than a typical coming-of-age lesbian movie. The focus of Rolla Selbak's movie is not Maya's sexuality, but mainly discovering herself -- what's her passion in life, what she wanna do for college, how to take care of her mother's addiction, and her feelings for a girl and/or maybe a boy next door (I am trying to keep it vague so i don't spoil it for you).
Basketball isn't my favorite sports, but Making Maya made it all interesting for me. The up and coming Selbak highly succeeded in the scenes on the basketball court. She's a filmmaker to watch for.
If you watch this movie with an open mind, you'll accept the limitations of low-budget movies without star actors and you will see beyond that -- the talent of a good director.
