Daisies, a modern take on gatsby


about this project

My thesis project for the film program at UC Santa Cruz, this narrative short is a tongue-in-cheek reflection on stalker crushes, college parties, woefully misunderstood works of modern literature, and that one friend you're kind of obsessed with. Are high school students mature enough to understand the complexities of F. Scott Fitzgerald's greatest work? No. But reckless youth and misguided passion are something college girls can understand.
