When I say that I want to create work that provides a ticket to conversation, this movie is precisely what I mean. Monkey Bars is a short film I worked on at the beginning of 2020. This film explores coming-of-age storytelling with such complexity and creativity. I've never known a character the way I have known Maggie. I've never felt adrenaline the way I did the first time Jacqueline Xerri called 'action'. To put it simply, I've never done anything like this. Check back here for updates and connect with me on Instagram for posts about how the fourteen-year-old girl obsessed with T Mills and Taylor Swift rocked my world.
When fourteen-year-old Maggie and her two best friends hang out with older guys they meet on Facebook, a crush on a complicated boy unravels into a twisted trance fueled by Four Lokos and naive infatuation.
