“A giant girl feels out of scale in her colorful little town, only to realize she takes up just the right amount of space.”

Film by Emily Brundige, USA, 2019.

Director’s statement:

Goldie was an idea I came up with years ago that still excited me. In the wake of the 2016 election, it felt like the right time to create, quite simply, A GIRL WHO TAKES UP SPACE. Though it took two years to produce, I still feel like it’s the perfect time for a character like Goldie; a giant girl with a giant heart. With the film, I hope to communicate to kids (and adults) that there’s no person too big or too small to be loved in this world.
