  MOVIE POSTER OLIVIA, Crime/Drama - 6min - Canada
Appeared at WILDsound's August 2013 Film Festival

Directed by Prasanna Paul

Genre: Crime / Drama / Base on a true story

Length: 6:50


A lonely girl in a room filled with memories reflects back to her horrifying past which she can't seem to escape.

Director's Statement:

Written by a Hollywood writer Jack Ketchum "Olivia" tells the story of a love bond between two girls and the horrifying end. It's based on a true event which goes from Olivia's girlfriend's point of view. We wanted to put the audience in her shoes and drive the story from there. We also wanted to drive the story visually and take them on an emotional rollercoaster.

Production Notes:

"Olivia" is written by Jack Ketchum, writer of Hollywood feature films "The Girl Next Door", "Red". I had the opportunity to work with him on my film school's final term. The film was entirely shot on 35 mm, with the support of Toronto Film School. The first day of shooting took place in "University of Ontario" (UOIT) and we had a great shoot with a very high enthusiastic crew. Overall this film was a wonderful experience and as young film makers we learned a lot
