VAL mixes live-action and animation to tell the story of a New York artist and her young teen daughter as they face the reality of a zero dollar bank balance. Using a combination of narrative story telling & diary like monologues VAL explores themes such as identity, financial security, & sexuality with unsparing honesty while maintaining a vibrant sense of fun. Val is on a metaphorical motorcycle ride on her way to making her mark in (art) history…hopefully.
