Francesco Calabrese’s “Lovely Monster” narrates the unique challenges faced by a girl with an incurable and frightening condition.  The simple short follows a documentary crew as they interview various figures in her life: classmates, her mother, a bully, and of course herself.  No one should be alone but you might change your mind after watching where the story goes.
 
Our team loves this film for its skillful use of documentary style storytelling and spare use of CGI to tell a personal story.  However fictional it may be, it makes you consider the plight of those with sharper edges than others.
