Jasmine is a Star

MKE Film Festival

JASMINE IS A STAR follows a determined sixteen-year-old with albinism (lack of pigment in the hair, skin, and eyes) who makes it her mission to become a professional model in her hometown of Minneapolis while attempting to go unnoticed in every other aspect of her teenage life. Director Jo Rochelle (writer for Freeform's GOOD TROUBLE) creates a sensitive depiction of a different category of teenage angst. Preceded by KYLIE Dir. Sterling Hampton.

"Jasmine is a Star is a thoughtful, sensitive depiction of a different category of teenage angst highlighting the tendency for people to project their fears of the unknown on to others." - ranglais27tales
