I AM WHOLE
Directed by Bianca Poletti
Produced by Shayna Gianelli
United States | English | 3' | Fiction
A coming of age story about a girl starting to find her voice while struggling with the pressures of growing up too fast from her peers and social media.
Aesthetically attuned SYSFF alum Bianca Poletti wows us again with her compelling casting, intoxicating visual language, stylized art direction, and deliciously dramatic lighting in I AM WHOLE. With frames begging to be placed on the front page of Shot Deck, this three minute masterpiece is a whimsical roller-coaster tone poem that explores the pressures young girls face surrounding virginity and asks why we define sexual exploration in terms of a loss. — Erin Brown Thomas, Artistic Director
