PIGGIE (90 minutes)

Written and directed by Alison Bagnall, co-writer of Vincent Gallo's BUFFALO '66, PIGGIE is a hilarious and excruciating look at unrequited love.

The story of an unbalanced young girl in upstate New York dairy country who falls for a petty criminal from NYC and tries to manipulate him into being her boyfriend, PIGGIE stars Savannah Haske in a fearless performance as the desperate Fannie Pogue and real-life rock star Dean Wareham of Luna and Galaxie 500 fame the object of her desire.

The film is a raw, bittersweet, and utterly captivating portrait of an awkward girl's coming of age.
