The Night is Ours
2014 / USA / 15 Minutes / Aubree Bernier-Clarke
Troubled tomboy Morgan (Bex Taylor-Klaus) is stricken with guilt after the accidental death of her best friend Olivia (Jacqueline Emerson). She attends Olivia’s wake to say goodbye, but when Morgan is alone with the body, Olivia miraculously comes back to life and coerces Morgan to take her on a trip the two had planned together.
They escape into the night on a reckless road-trip that takes them past the boundaries of friendship and into a dark, uncertain future. This twisted teen romance flirts with the supernatural, but reflects on the realities of female friendship, emerging sexuality, and the emotional ambiguities of teenage life.
