COMING SOON - Spring 2021
RINGLING COLLEGE OF ART & DESIGN

A whimsical, coming-of-age film that deals with the lack of easy accessibility to feminine hygiene products in schools for girls. Karman, a 6th grader,
gets her period for the first time at school and skips class with her best friend, Tiffany, to go on a quest in search of a menstrual pad. Throughout the film, Karman’s experience is intercut with metaphorical imagery that illustrates the feelings girls experience during that “time of the month.”
It’s a fun and bold way to show the bittersweetness of growing up.
