Project: Elin

ELIN (SHORT FILM)

CASTING CALL FOR 

MARIE: Marie, 30s, is married to a local Pastor. She was born and raised in the North woods. Her world is small but she’s always had her eyes set on something bigger. She is tough, methodical and clever - she always has a plan and is one step ahead of everyone.

THE JUDGE: The Judge, 60s, is a repressed loner. A pillar in his community, he is respected yet feared. An avid hunter, Judge is an excep- tional tracker. Finding Elin and bringing her home is the thrill of his lifetime.

 

Set in Minnesota’s Iron Range in the early 1900s, we follow the story of Elin, a Swedish immigrant on the run from her abusive employer, a town Judge.

As she pushes on, she seeks refuge in a remote church, where she stumbles upon a vicious crime. Elin is taken hostage by Marie, the wife of a Pastor, and forced to help dispose of his body. The story takes a turn, as over the course of the night’s events, the two women find they share an uncommon bond.

Project: Boys Don't Kiss Fat Girls

A dark comedy short about a girl struggling with her weight and the bullies around her, including her own family. When a landscaper across the street is the only one to show her kindness, she makes the misguided decision to follow him home, which ends in dark comedic twist. 

This story was inspired by the director/writer and her struggles with weight and comments about her weight growing up. Set in the early 2000s, when society was far less aware of the implications of fatphobia.
