THE WATER SONG (2019)

narrative short | 14 mins

written and directed by Dave Jannetta

based on the short story by Kelly Daniels

A spunky nine-year-old receives a shiny pink bike for her birthday, but her domineering uncle is the only adult in the trailer park willing to teach her how to ride it. The word “quit" however, is not in either of their vocabulary. The Water Song is a parable for standing up for yourself, finding a voice in Trump-era America, and saying "F**K YOU" to the patriarchal way of doing business..
