White Girl is an American film written and directed by Elizabeth Wood in her directorial debut, in which Leah, a college student, falls hard for a bad boy and then goes to wild extremes to get him back.. It stars Morgan Saylor, Brian Marc and India Menuez between others. Wood had to work against her own nature and strip down a hefty story, based on her own experiences, and to craft a tightly wound story that addresses issues as wide-ranging as white privilege, illegal drugs and sexual assault. Initially imagined as 200-page script that culminated in “a mass orgy,” Wood had to pare down her story to a slim 88 minutes, all in the name of maximum impact and minimum superfluity. The film had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January/2016.
