Ten-year-old Grace, a budding musician and new wave fan, spends every afternoon at a friend's house supposedly practicing piano, but secretly borrowing 80's records from the mom's collection. When the mom returns home early one day, Grace senses a kindred spirit, but wonders if she should come clean about her thieving.
Some Girls' Mothers
Set in the 1980's a young boy makes a final plea to President Reagan, on behalf of his love interest, to stop the building of a tract home development that will replace their existing community pool.
Shot 35mm anamorphic in 1999, Highpoint Pool was eventually completed in 2013 after being on hold for over a decade. After sitting in film storage for 13 years, the negative was pulled, scanned, edited and completed with generous help from friends, some additional ADR from our own kids (now the same age of the kids acting in the film) and a couple small personal loans.
