Written and directed by Megan Park in her feature filmmaking debut, THE FALLOUT won the Grand Jury and Audience Awards for Narrative Feature, and Park won the Brightcove Illumination Award honoring a filmmaker on the rise at this year’s SXSW Film Festival. Jenna Ortega plays a high schooler who navigates the emotional fallout she experiences in the wake of a school tragedy. Relationships with her family and friends, as well as her view of the world, are forever altered.
“It’s a remarkable accomplishment: a film with the confidence to pose big questions, and the humility to leave them unanswered.” ~Peter Debruge, Variety
“Ortega nails her role as a levelheaded teen who, nevertheless, is still a teen, reeling from an unthinkable event on top of the usual growing pains.” ~Claire Shaffer, The New York Times
