When I Was Seven

Canada, 2000 (MIFF 2001, Fiction)

Director: Jessica Bradford

Reminiscent of Todd Solondz's Welcome To The Dollhouse. Bradford weaves a gripping and transformative story about seven year-old Tess as she confronts her greatest fear. This tale is memorable for its study in sheer schoolyard terror.
