Nadya’s Sleepover, Invite Only is a dark comedy that tells the story of a group of preteen friends, five girls and one boy, who turn a seemingly routine slumber party into a clandestine fight club. This is a film about kids learning to redefine their relationships with their bodies, navigating gendered expectations, and realising the lengths true friends will go for each other.
The film is a story about violence, trust, and the ways young women forge relationships with their bodies and with each other.
Directed by Ruby Mastrodimos, a graduate of Barnard College of Columbia University, Matrodimos is interested in feminist film theory, punk music and urban legends, regularly creating short films, music videos and documentaries surrounding those topics.
The crew are currently in pre-production with plans to film in NYC and Northern New Jersey. They need $5000 to create this film for renting equipment, paying cast and crew, food, locations and stunt training. Their Indiegogo campaign runs until October 2nd and can be found here.
