Monkey Bars (2021)

2021 | Drama | Short Film

A twisted coming-of-age story with Milly Shapiro (Hereditary)

Plot: 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.

Not sure how to comprehend that, but that was fascinating. The second half especially felt like a lucid dream, with her emotions taking over what we were experiencing. Great acting all around, amazing cinematography, haunting music, well done.

Director: Jacqueline Xerri
Stars: Milly Shapiro, Santiago Velez, Christopher Inman
