Storyline

It is summer in the 1980s, and ten-year-old Sara's whole world is her front yard and the park at the end of the street. With her parents consumed in domestic battles, Sara experiences life uncensored. She glimpses sex, both gorgeous and awful, and broken hearts, one of them, her own. When Sara's idea of fun gets her forbidden from everyone her own age, Sara finds her way into the lives of two older boys; boys who, like Sara, are ill-fitting neighborhood legends. Written by Megan Martin

African revolutionaries, wall-unit redemption, and haircuts by children...fantastic. wonderful self-contained short debut from the wacky imagination of megan martin. battling platoons of adolescents battling with the strife and friction of everyday life cast sideways through the canted lens of a removed but relevant saskatoon experience. deft handling of what is a cleverly invoked rumination on the whats and hows of encountering sexuality in a mundane - and for that, reason, socially and political - context. one of the smartest shorts this side of the moon, with tight technical insight and an edited rhythm that leaves any audience taken with the seemingly petty but entirely monumental machinations of memorialized youth culture and the little idiosyncratic instances we all lived and, importantly, collectively recall and remember.
