Preparing for her new school's picture day, a young tomboy must choose between betraying her mother or herself.
Kelly Pike's coming of age drama, PICTURE DAY, takes a gentle approach as it delicately burrows into your heart and finds a home. It unfolds in an observant manner, mirroring real life, relying minimally on dialogue. Amidst the abundance of films centered around body piercings in the current zeitgeist (we seriously have a plethora of them), the intricate and nuanced family dynamics in this understated short film enable it to resonate on a deeper level, surpassing mere nostalgia. — Erin Brown Thomas, Artistic Director
