Woman in Stall

  • Madeleine Sims-Fewer, Dusty Mancinelli


    Madeleine and Dusty met at the 2015 TIFF Talent Lab and experienced an instant convergence of minds, quickly joining forces as a filmmaking duo. Highly focused on a naturalistic performance style and visual aesthetic, their films explore gender politics, the selfishness of human nature, and abuse of power. Their short film Slap Happy screened at BFI London Film Festival, VIFF and Slamdance, among others, and their latest short Woman in Stall won the Jury Award for Best Narrative Student Short at the Austin Film Festival. They recently received financing for their first feature through Telefilm Canada's Talent to Watch program.

When a young woman goes into a bathroom stall to change she is interrupted by a friendly stranger who insists she has gone into the men’s bathroom by mistake.
