MISHKA (short film about teen pregnancy)
11% of the births worldwide come from a teen mother. 31 000 children have a baby every year in Canada. Nearly 820, 000 teens are pregnant each year in USA. More than 16 million teen girls become pregnant each year in the world.
MISHKA tells the story of a conflicted 13-year-old and her grim secrets. In the face of an unsettling reality, Mishka makes an alarming decision in a desperate attempt to revert her childhood self.
Using again similar themes from my first short film “The Silence”, MISHKA portrays with disarming honesty the reality of millions of girls in this world.
Starring Matia Jackett, Ray Galletti, Devyn Nekoda, Kiki Hammill, Nicolas Ballarini, Alexandra Bacci & Katie Uhlmann. Directed and written by Cleo Tellier.
