My Summer As A Goth

After the sudden death of her father, 16-year-old Joey Javitts is sent to stay with her eccentric grandparents while her author mother sets off on a book tour. Bored and sad, Joey promptly falls for Victor, the beguiling goth boy next door. Victor, along with his merry band of misfits, transforms Joey into a brooding, mausoleum-loving, full-fledged goth. While her grandparents and a visiting best friend try to understand who this new girl is, Joey’s search for identity and love lead her down a transformative path filled with heartache and white makeup. This premiere feature film from director Tara Johnson-Medinger is a coming-of-age story about social alienation in adolescence and that first bittersweet summer heartbreak. Tara Johnson-Medinger will be in attendance.
