Here are some of our favorite narrative things we’ve done for much less money than our commercial things.
A mysterious young woman materializes in the middle of the Southwestern desert, where each step teaches her about her new world and her new body. As she assumes her new life, she discovers she has a twin with whom she shares more than just an outward appearance.

“As a portrait of female identity, in all its hopes and disappointments, joys and sorrows, Imitation Girl inspires a shudderingly sublime sense of awe that is not ultimately defined by male desires and demands.”
- BFI, Sight & Sound
“…a gentle tale about identity and what defines us… 2017’s gem.”
“…achieves a feminist fairy-tale with a shivery existentialist twist.”
"...a compelling examination of love, sex, race, identity and basically the human condition. All done in 84 minutes. See it. Accept no substitutes."
- Electric Shadows
“…a sensitive and thought-provoking little film that deals with the biggest of themes.”
“Imitation Girl epitomizes grassroots independent cinema at its most fragile, beautiful, and honest.”
-The People’s Movies
