In the throes of an emotional trauma, Millie and Anima journey to an old beach house where they try to heal. They discover their amorphous duality, projecting their mental and emotional psyches onto one another and raising questions about the uncertain boundaries that divide them. (Fun, right?!)

Mission Statement

We are seeking to reach women in their early adulthood who are undergoing emotional and mental stress that is often stigmatized or "othered."

The Story

Millie is a story about two halves, a tale of doubling, the “twining”of identities as seen in the complex relationship between two young women. In this film, we explore the nuances of psyche and emotional health within the context of the female intimacy. We feel the discussion of self (and namely the woman’s experience with self), has been dominated by the male voice, so our approach is inherently original as it sets the stage for self-discovery as told by women! In our narrative, we discuss the degree to which a woman can identify herself in another individual and thus explore the mystery of boundaries between people and within ourselves. These two characters journey to an old beach house, seemingly frozen in time. There, they get lost in each other.
