Kevin Schaub, Frameline 39, San Francisco

“Full of invention, melancholy and quiet outrage”

Insight Film Festival Curation Scheme

SYNOPSIS

17 year old Mina isn’t like most teenage girls. Her concerned parents decide to act before it’s too late. But things don’t quite go according to plans.

Part horror movie part magical realism, “Paper Thin” is a subversive take on psychiatry, religious homophobia, the power of fairy godmothers…and the truth.
