White Girl (Elizabeth Wood | USA | 88 min.)

The cross section between New York’s mean streets and its gentrified alcoves makes for potent social satire in Elizabeth Wood’s tough and exhilarating debut. Equipped with platinum blonde hair and a winning smile, college girl Leah (Morgan Saylor) seeks out pleasure in any form. She has two weeks before fall semester, and in between getting high with her roommate and snorting lines with her boss, she finds time to hit it off with a handsome, young Puerto Rican drug dealer named Blue. Within days, the two are selling dime bags to her affluent white colleagues, collecting fast cash, and living the high life. But their euphoria comes to a grinding halt once Blue is arrested and Leah’s left with a hefty amount of his coke. Does she sell it to save him or use it herself?

Presented in Partnership with: FilmRise. In theaters this September


Elizabeth Wood, an Oklahoma City native, moved NYC to study writing at the New School. After a few years of making experimental and documentary films, Wood received a screenwriting fellowship to Columbia where she received her MFA. One of Variety’s ‘10 Directors to Watch’ in 2016, Elizabeth makes her narrative directorial debut with WHITE GIRL, inspired by her true story.
