Lena Dunham

Creative Nonfiction

18 Feb, 2009

Dunham makes a low-budget, low-fi sixty minute film about Ella, a college student (played by Dunham) who has ambivalent feelings about her dorm-mate Chris. Ella is a virgin, and the film wrestles with her anxieties about sex as she tries unsuccessfully to complete a screenplay she has to finish in order to graduate. The film premiered at the New Filmmakers festival and was included in Austin’s South by Southwest festival.

A lot of it. An embarrassingly amount of it is autobiographical . . . . On a film-making level you can do it. An incredibly low- budget, low-fi way of working. If I can make a movie, really, anyone can make a movie.
