Crystal Lake

Jennifer Reeder

Feature Film

A group of young girls take over a skate park. Behind the big fence that surrounds the concrete field around the half pipes, they have created their own realm. Here they can skate as much as they want, boys are not allowed in. When Ladan arrives in town, the girls automatically include her in the group. Crystal Lake is an ode to solidarity among girls.
