The Tracey Fragments

This one looks 'a bit weird'. Stars the great new talent Elliot Page (Juno) as 15-year-old Tracey Birkowitz, a girl who finds herself riding around an urban wasteland on the back of a bus, naked apart from a shower curtain wrapped around her. She's looking for her little brother Sonny, who thinks he's a dog.

The film uses a split screen technique to tell the story of how she got there (hence the 'fragments'), and features Page in nearly every frame. There was a competition held which made all the footage from the film available for people to reedit it into music videos, short films, or simply to rearrange the narrative.
