Double Handed
dir. Caran Hartsfield

Double Handed is a charming piece of work which explores the trails and tribulations of a young girl with an embarrassing social disability, Double Handedness. Doubled-Handed individuals turn double dutch ropes so poorly that they are usually excluded from this popular form of childhood socialization and play. Caran, successfully revisits an experience shared by youths of countless generations through the life of a girl who just doesn't fit in.
