The Hafiz Project - Poems
From the team that brought you Alistair's Wednesday, a Valley 5 Productions and UNREEL Films collaboration, written and produced by Anna Megan Becker. Directed by Eric Mann.
In the cutthroat world of fashion, a quirky "plus" must own her place and value as a working model, reshaping body language and the rigid unforgiving old fashion norms as a peer baffled by her presence challenges her worth within a market already crowded with too many bodies.

"We really enjoyed this well made, heartfelt story. About a women coming undone, as her hypochondriac tendencies slowly begin to take over her mind. The central performance by Anna Megan Becker is subtle and well observed, elevating this story about one persons struggles to something relatable (and more importantly, genuine) to people from all walks of life. Directed with confidence by Eric Mann."
