Set in the world of female equestrian acrobatics, the competition gets hot when 15-year-old Emma is assigned to train with the older, self-confident Cassandra. The frienemies immediately ignite a psychological battle, cruelly pushing each other's boundaries of strength, sexuality, and overall control. Using mostly physical language, award-winning SHE MONKEYS takes the cliché mean girl movie and deepens the exploration of the girlhood desires, creating a coming of age story that's both innovative and provocative. Winner of the Tribeca Film Festival Grand Jury prize for Best Feature.
