Somewhere In July follows a 10-year-old girl, caught in the chasm of a family divided over her father’s recent transition into a woman. Filmed stylistically from the perspective of the child, our story captures the innocent and pure love of a child, at play with an at times harsh and confusing world. July is forced into an adult world of politics and morality and with all of these pressures and new, mostly negative social attention, she just wants her family back.
Set in 1974 rural New England, this enchanting story moves through the days of Cecily, a seven-year-old girl who, after the death of her baby sister, lives in a world with no music, no color, no laughter, no love—that is, until a magical imaginary friend shows up and joins Cecily on the quest to save her family from the grief that is destroying them. Jennifer Potts wrote the feature film script The Extraordinary World of Cecily Blinkstop in 2014, and this short version is based on the first 15 pages of the feature film script. This short film will be produced as a proof of concept to raise funding for the feature film.
