After years apart, the death of a mutual friend brings three estranged high school friends together to revisit a past that has long since been buried.
Reunited, but hampered by the ghosts of their past, the friends comb the back alleys and dive bars of their home town in search of answers to their questions and the truth about the girl.
Writer/producer: Michael Humble
Director: Kevin Hoffman
Kevin Hoffman says:
“A long gestating project, About the Girl really was a film borne out of a passion for the art. With minimal previous experience and a slight budget, producer and writer Michael Humble gathered up a group of friends and set out to put his words to film.
Working through scheduling conflicts with the principle performers and early snowfalls, they set out to capture a portrait of mystery and intrigue set in the Northern Ontario autumn.
The result was About the Girl, a visually sumptuous effort that will hopefully be the first of many to come from this team of talented, dedicated individuals who came together through a shared love of film, both technically and artistically.”
