First Girl I Loved
The young Anne (Dylan Gelula) must navigate between her infatuation with Sasha (Brianna Hildebrand), the softball champion of the school, and her best friend Cliff (Mateo Arias) who has always been in love with her and reacts negatively to her coming out. The writer and director Kerem Sanga manages to tell, in an original way, of the magic and lightness that first loves bring together with the anxieties of adolescence, alternating the points of view of the protagonists, and using a narrative that undermines the chronological sequence of events.
Public’s choice award at the Sundance Film festival 2016.
