Panda Girl

Panda Girl Extract 1

Panda Girl Extract 2

Here are a couple of extracts from the feature film script I wrote for my MA that reinterpreted parts of Heaven is a Place… Just as The Darning Needle sought to expose the sexist tropes of Fairytale Princess stories, Panda Girl exposes the sexist trope of the manic pixie dream girl. It is the story of Matthew, an introverted teenager who seeks liberation from his restrictive life through a relationship with the eccentric Panda Girl. Problems arise when Matthew is unable to see the ‘very real’ Panda Girl as anything beyond an escape from his mundane existence. I plan on writing more drafts soon, making Matthew’s objective clearer, as at present, he is at risk of being smothered by other characters’ personalities and coming across as too passive.
