synopsis
Fantasy and realism collide in this exploration of how children living on a former naval base have created fantastical stories around the real threat of radiation buried beneath their homes.



about the director
Elizabeth Lo is an award-winning nonfiction filmmaker who seeks to find new, aesthetic ways of exploring the boundaries between species, class, and states of personhood. Her short films have been showcased at festivals across North America and Europe, including Sundance, True/False, SFIFF, Hot Docs, and DOK Leipzig. Her short, Hotel 22, was nominated for an IDA Documentary Award, and was featured on New York Times Op-Docs. Elizabeth is the recipient of the Telluride Student Symposium Fellowship, the Breitrose Award, and the Stanford University Spice Award. She is currently an M.F.A. candidate in the Stanford University documentary film program. Prior to graduate school, Elizabeth wrote and co-produced for the award-winning documentary series, Our America with Lisa Ling (now on CNN). She was born and raised in Hong Kong, and received her B.F.A. in English and Film from the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University.
Melissa Langer was born and raised in Washington, DC. She holds a BA in History from Carleton College and has worked for the Philadelphia Film Society, the People's Production House, and Creative Time in New York. For the past several years she has made media for permanent museum installations around the country while producing and editing In Crystal Skin, an independent film shot in Bogotá, Colombia, that traces the lives of four individuals challenged by a rare inherited skin disorder. She is currently directing My Aleppo, co-written by a young Syrian family in Pretoria as they attempt to preserve memories of their home city as it is decimated by war. Her short films have screened at Hot Docs, SXSW, and Big Sky.
