The joy is finding the narrative within a beautiful series of images.
On the one hand, BRAVE GIRLS is a universal coming-of-age story of young women falling in love and imagining a life different than that of their parents. On the other, the film is an exploration into the fundamental questions of how societal change occurs: When do we break from traditions? And when is it the better choice to accommodate the social norms of our community?
Walk With Me
