Girls' POV (2021)

Runtime: 80 min. | Recommended Ages: 10+
The intrepid and insightful girls of this 2021 slate aren’t afraid of exploration, be it through the sometimes rough waters of friendship, the challenges of climate, or through artistic experimentation. The girls in Under the Skin hold their breath training for a synchronized swimming meet while navigating the twists and turns of competitive friendships. Father and daughter bond over their indigenous roots and art in OTANIMM/ONNIMM, a lovely and loving film with a range of inventive animation and photographic techniques.
