Competition: June, 2021
Synopsis: Are You Okay? is a short film produced by Wonder Media in collaboration with the Barbara Sinatra Children’s Center Foundation to bring awareness to the effect of cyberbullying among teens. This bystander story is told through the perspective of a 15 year old girl, Raquelle, who witnesses her classmate Noah being bullied. When doing the right thing transforms Raquelle from bystander to victim, she finds herself trapped in the same emotional quicksand of her peers. At an age when social acceptance weighs heavy and the stress of social media follows you home, Raquelle and Noah learn that no one can make it through alone. Are You Okay? explores the impact that reaching out can have on someone in crisis.
Are You Okay? follows Wonder Media’s recent collaboration with the Barbara Sinatra Children’s Center Foundation and the organization’s Fight Child Abuse initiative, where they produced a sexual abuse prevention series for teens.
