About this submission

When Leah's parents decide to sell her childhood home, she returns home to pack up her belongings. In doing so, she encounters a particularly destructive strand of kudzu that is hellbent on destroying everything she knows.

This is the first draft of the script. Most of my work is experimental--my most recent film Teardown just played at Denver Film Festival. I primarily work with hand-processed and tactilely manipulated film. Here, I am looking to pair narrative with experimental techniques in order to tell a story of gentrification and teardown culture in Atlanta, Georgia. For feedback purposes, I would love to know how prominent those themes read and what can be made more clear, what can be teased out, toned down, etc.
