The Daily Buzz at TIFF, Episode 8

Daily Buzz Host John Wildman chats with director Alexandra-Terese Keining in the lobby of the Hilton Garden Inn Hotel during the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival about her film Girls Lost. The film centers on three teenage girls who magically turn into boys. Keining talks to Wildman about why she was inspired to make this film by YA author Jessica Schiefauer, whose novels have been banned in several schools in Sweden. They discuss magical realism, gender fluidity, bullying, and finding your true identity.
