MISHKA (short film about teen pregnancy)
 
17:40
11% of the births worldwide come from a teen mother. 31 000 children have a baby every year in Canada. Nearly 820, 000 teens are pregnant each year in USA. More than 16 million teen girls become pregnant each year in the world. MISHKA tells the story of a conflicted 13-year-old and her grim secrets. In the face of an unsettling reality, Mishka makes an alarming decision in a desperate attempt to revert her childhood self. Using again similar themes from my first short film “The Silence”, MISHKA portrays with disarming honesty the reality of millions of girls in this world. Starring Matia Jackett, Ray Galletti, Devyn Nekoda, Kiki Hammill, Nicolas Ballarini, Alexandra Bacci & Katie Uhlmann. Directed and written by Cleo Tellier. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4327456/ ALL YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED ABOUT THE FILM HERE: https://youtu.be/1HZL-xDvKSc MISHKA PART 2 ANNOUNCEMENT: https://youtu.be/LJI8I4IRQew

The Silence (short film about child abuse)

Ann, Leslie, Isabelle and Jerome were four out of the two million children who live in foster care all around the world. Before their life in foster care, they were forgotten, abused, unseen and unloved. Today, they decide to break the silence surrounding child abuse, and share their story to the world in a heartbreaking way. At 19 years old, Cleo Tellier directed her first film The Silence, which won over 50 awards across the world and got over 30 additional nominations. After The Silence became OSCAR eligible, Cleo made her second film, Mishka. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4142340/ SPECIAL THANK YOU TO http://arkofhopeforchildren.org

Pitching Mishka Part 2 to Networks + #noshave movement experiment
 
03:58
As young women (11, 12, 13 years old) shaving is one of the first ways we learn to alter ourselves to conform to society's expectations. Instead of being able to embrace the transformation into into our adult bodies, we are expected to erase and remove any sign of womanhood. Before being given a chance to determine how we feel about hair, or our bodies, the social requirement to remain hairless is imposed upon us. As a result, we learn to look outward for answers about how we should view and treat our bodies, and we are made vulnerable because of it. This vulnerability is what promotes and enables exploitation - it provides a pathway for predators, for an industry, and for the law to dictate what a woman’s body should be and do. The right to decide whether or not to shave becomes invisible because we give it up before we know it exists. What we don’t realize is that this right shares a gateway with a woman’s right to be accepted for who she is and for her own unique femininity - however she chooses to express it (even with hair).
