How does it feel to hurt?

Simone Smith

Pop culture and playground politics collide in this kaleidoscopic and disturbing drama about a girl trying to fit in. This surreal and at times uncomfortable exploration is a physical shock to the system, as it delves into a dream-like exploration of youth, peer pressure and survival, transporting the viewer back to a time we may have wilfully repressed. Made in Glasgow on a zero budget, this film was made passionately and independently by Simone as a way to explore personal experience and as a way to strengthen her voice as a filmmaker.
