Mary Mary Features in Someday Stories 2022 Series

Someday Stories has released the first four films of its 2022 series, featuring Mary Mary. Congratulations to the editor, DEGANZ member Sam Small.

The short film, written and directed by Gabriella Gilbert, is set in 1963 and based on true events. It follows eighteen-year-old Mary as she faces an unplanned pregnancy. She is forced to take things into her own hands when her relationships and future are at stake, changing the course of more than just her own life.

Additionally, DEGANZ 2018 Incubator alum Michelle Savill was the project’s production mentor.

Someday Stories focuses on six sustainability-themed shorts by young kiwi filmmakers each year. From drama to documentaries to music videos, the series sparks ideas and stimulates conversation about the future and sustainability. This year’s series concentrates on stories based on true events that portray issues that permeate current society and how our choices affect us and future generations.
