2015 short film
Lucie is a realistic coming-of-age drama about a teenage girl's dilemma of freedom pursuit. Teenage years are messy. Especially for girls. They put themselves in risky situations because there is such a strong desire to be free and desirable. I hope to create something that feels truthful. Most actors in the film had no acting experience. I also chose to shoot with portable camera with hand-held style and mostly natural lighting to accommodate the spontaneity of my actors, to make the film honest, emotionally complicated and alive.
