Porcupine Lake trailer:

About the movie - "Thirteen-year-old Bea (Charlotte Salisbury) wants a best friend more than anything else, and when she meets rambunctious Kate (Lucinda Armstrong Hall), the pair form an unexpected bond that will change both of their lives forever. Ingrid Veninger’s PORCUPINE LAKE takes the time to explore the feelings and experiences of young girls with a thoughtful honesty that sets the film apart from most contemporary fiction, creating a story sensitive to the secret world of her characters, set during a fateful summer when adulthood has not yet arrived, but childhood is quickly vanishing."  From page linked below.

The film hits on modern romance, which (in many cases, for the millennial generation and those to follow, at least) is shaped by tech. Simply put: this is a new world. Amir and I seek to create content that reflects that – in a realistic, gritty way. “Realism.” You may have heard this term as it’s related to filmmaking, but the idea is to never emulate other work. It’s about thinking outside the box. “Realism” was a movement. MAN isn’t trying to be that. It needs to be it’s own thing. Everything about MAN defies the ‘norm’ that most other films follow.
