On Ted Bundy and the loss of innocence
It's curious that "coming-of-age' and "loss of innocence' are two ways of saying essentially the same thing. One feels so optimistic, the other bleak, sad, irreversible. Our short film Fry Day manages to somehow meld the two. Set on the day of Ted Bundy's execution, it follows a young woman who snaps photos of those gathered to celebrate the killer's death in Florida. Even against that grim backdrop, teenagers still want to be teenagers, in romantic and naive ways and also in very bad ways. Directed by Laura Moss, it's won a bunch of awards on the festival circuit, and we're really proud to offer it to you.
Elsewhere in our current issue you'll find a music scene on the rise, how not to fall in love in springtime, crocheted soft porn, and all sorts of other Spring Awakenings.
