Director Statement

Cool Girls is a humorous new take on today’s millennial generation and our obsession with being noticed and liked. Everything from our outfits to our breakfasts are well-thought-out, curated, and documented. Everything Amber-Mae does is for the purpose of impressing other people, and simply proving that she is in fact, cool. All the while, Terri-Lynn is trying desperately to keep up. Cool Girls is important because as outrageous and unreasonable as these two girls are, they are shockingly relatable. They are us today, clumsily navigating through a strange new world of self-branding and social-status upkeep. Not only does Amber and Terri’s partnership give us permission to step back and laugh at ourselves, it also reminds us that maybe we’re not so cool after all.
