“My name is Allie Green. I’m sixteen. And this is my suicide tape.” This begins Allie’s deeply personal video diary, chronicling the next few months of her life leading up to that inevitable day. Anathema Arienette assembles her daily entries and taps into the world of a girl trapped in the clutches of depression. Having lost touch with friends and living a fear-driven relationship with her father, Allie’s camcorder provides the only means of expressing herself. Deeply emotional and effective, Anathema cuts to the core of the pains of adolescence.
