Vote for a girl like me

Posted by metaphorical on 8 April 2007

Back in January I mentioned the movie short “A Girl Like Me.” The filmmaker, Kiri Davis, is one of three finalists for a $10,000 scholarship sponsored by CosmoGirl.

If you haven’t watched the movie, you can see it on YouTube, here, or you can view it before voting on the Cosmo site, here.

Thanks to Susan at ReadingWritingLiving for blogging about the vote, and I’m pretty sure her wonderful site is where I first heard about the film. As Susan writes, “It’s a sad, powerful and moving piece of work.” It’ll break your heart, in fact, and then mend it again when you realize that we live in an age when an extraordinary 16-year-old girl could make a movie like this, and that we can help her keep making them for a long time to come.
