A short film about five Muslim girls from East London. Each girl imagines herself a superhero, fearlessly taking on whatever life throws at her.
During a 5-day half-term holiday at Mulberry School in Whitechapel, Eelyn Lee ran a series of workshops to generate content for this short film portrait. Working with a performance poet, an animator, a cinematographer and five students together they devised five superhero characters inspired by each of the girls.
"...This film is as much about smart filmmaking as it is about the five heroes themselves...."
