Girls' POV (2019)

Recommended ages: 10+
Program runtime: 75 min.

In Girls’ POV, girls tell it like it is, and who doesn’t need a Field Guide to Being a 12-Year-Old Girl—whether you are, have been, or ever wanted to be one—in this wry comedy. The Shadow of Cairo must take on a different mission and guise in the face of harassment during her first superhero outing on the streets of Egypt. Blurring the line between expectations, reality, and representation, the girl in the animated My Body boldly reclaims her voice to tell the mirror how it really is.
