This film was created from curiosity and personal experience of teenagehood. Our heightened senses and emotions during this period of our lives are fascinating. Everything is new and exciting but we just don’t know it until it’s over. This paired with finding one’s sexuality and experimenting with it is an important subject that needs to be explored. As young women, we need to be confident in our desires and not be submissive. We are not there to only to be pleased but also to be pleasured.
It explores the themes of youth and sexuality and represents the empowerment of women and their sexuality through their teenage years.
This film is a daydream. It’s riding in a car and listening to your favourite song. It’s lazing around in your bedroom. It’s pastel pink and blue
