Being a teenager is awkward. Super awkward. Having an older sister to mess up first makes it easier. But, when your sibling leaves you for college, you’re blind sighted by reality. Lydia, a ballerina who’s tied her bun a little too tight, has done her best to have ultimate control over everything around her thus far. In one drive, her ways of life are challenged by Bea, her 19 year-old sister. On their drive home from getting take-out, the girls realize they don’t click they way they used to. Bea is a stranger to Lydia.

THE PEOPLE’S HOUSE, 18min., Documentary, USA

Directed by Libby Roberts, Autumn Afton, Ella Rowland
Montana’s capitol, designed at the end of the 19th century, was intended to be the “people’s house,” uniting diverse interests across what was then just a territory to form the 41st state. But does it continue to live up to those principles today? Does it still speak to all Montanans? These student filmmakers present The People’s House, a documentary analyzing the past and present of the state Capitol to answer the question: who’s in and who’s out at the people’s house?

She hides in her bedroom closet until suddenly the door opens revealing her teddy bear who pulls her into a magical forest.

The girl has to confront her disturbing reality or otherwise, she cannot return to the real world.
