It's in post-production now and looks stunning. The movie is a dystopian fairytale that follows a young girl's rebellion against her family. The art direction and surreal imagery remind me of Tim Burton and David Lynch's early works. Like the film on Facebook to follow its progress and to support a young, risk-taking director.
