This is a true story about a girl I used to go to school with. A few months before creating this film, I ran into her at a hair show we were modeling for. It had been years since I had seen her and immediately tears filled her eyes and flooded down her freshly painted face. Her mother and sister kept telling her to stop crying and that she would ruin her makeup as she insisted on introducing me to them. Like a video loop she repeated and pleaded, "This girl was so nice to me in high school when nobody else was, she was popular and pretty and still nice to me, she stood up for me when everyone picked on me." My face was flushed a bright crimson, not really knowing what to say. I hadn't quite understood the impact that I had on this beautiful girl's life and especially that she held onto those memories years later. I felt guilty that I felt this way and also brought up memories of my past when I was once bullied and from then became a bully myself. Makeup didn't matter to her as her tears streamed and she clung to me tightly. I knew I had to share her story and deal with the troubles that I was feeling from this unexpected run-in. This piece is very personal and dear to me and one of my first attempts at making an experimental documentary. You will see me visually perform a reversal of words and emotions if you will, as she tells her story. Listen to what she has to say.
