Power Out

Grace, a high school senior, and Laura, her single mom, are forced to relocate from Los Angeles to Laura's old childhood home in Minnesota. As a storm rages outside, Grace's now long-distance girlfriend is breaking up with her when her phone dies and the power goes out. Grace's urgent quest to charge her phone leads her on a supernatural event that reveals both buried trauma and who really matters in her life.

Director Statement

My drive to become a director came from the need to put myself and others like me, our LGBTQ family, into the picture. I am inspired to continue make space for marginalized voices, visibility to our Black &. AAPI colleagues and to create work that explores those deeper questions that can only be asked through the experiential and metaphorical medium of narrative filmmaking.
