Arcadia, in association with FilmInk presents the Casula Powerhouse premiere of First Girl I Loved.

Directed by Kerem Sanga, this Sundance award winner shows us exactly what happens when high-school misfit Anne falls in love with Sasha, the beautiful star of the softball team. When Anne tells her best friend Clifton about her new crush, his jealousy threatens more than just the girls' budding romance.

Kerem Sanga is the writer/director of three features. His previous film, The Young Kieslowski, premiered at the 2014 Los
Angeles Film Festival, where it won the audience award. He attended USC film school as an Annenberg Fellow.

Directed by: Kerem Sanga
With: Dylan Gelula, Brianna Hildebrand, Mateo Arias
Country: USA
Language Production: Italian
Genre: Drama, Romance, Coming of age

"A woozy and wonderful queer teen romance... Dylan Gelula gives a revelatory performance in a film that suggests we're in for a new wave of teen cinema." - David Ehrlich, INDIEWIRE

"Sexual disorientation in high school makes for movie brilliance... Sanga creatively employs a swirl of text messages, voice-overs, baseball signals and other linguistic modes to beautifully illustrate the jumble of thoughts cascading through young minds." - Peter Howell, TORONTO STAR

Please contact Casula Powerhouse Reception for any booking queries. Booking details will be updated soon.
