Two high school nobodies embark on a desperate search for the biggest fight of the year in this delightful short by Los Angeles-based writer-director Lena Tsodykovskaya. Shot on 16mm, “Luisa and Anna’s First Fight” perfectly captures the extremes of adolescence, schoolyard drama, and idiot best friends:
“I was nasty as a teenager. Nasty and Silly. I wore heavy boots, talked loudly, skipped school and smoked. Still do all of those things by the way. And yes, I’ve been in fights. Incredibly silly ones. All three of them. This little film is based on those three fights and represents the stupidity of youth as much as rock solid girl friendships. To me this is what true friendship is — being there for each other’s most nonsensical endeavors and carrying the weight of its repercussions together.”
