About this submission

I came to creating this story through my love for coming of age filmmaking, from the likes of Gregg Araki's filmography, Gia Coppola’s quiet yet lush 'Palo Alto', Greta Gerwig’s angst-ridden 'Lady Bird', and the romanticism of summer in Luca Guadagnino’s 'Call Me By Your Name'. I wanted to compose a balance of romantic melancholy with the complexities of body insecurity, through a Queered lens.
