Apflickorna / She Monkeys

by Lisa Aschan New World View

With her controlled, powerful movements; 15-year-old Emma blends in perfectly during her first day at the local equestrian vaulting club – immediately catching the attention of self-conscious rider Cassandra. The mutual attraction between these two young women is based as much on physical desire as it is on a shared passion. However, the fragile relationship is soon threatened by their power games. While Emma and Cassandra enter into this dangerous contest, Emma’s seven-year-old sister Sara wrestles with her awakening sexuality. Lisa Aschan examines gender roles and psychological power in her intense debut feature.
