The Story

"A little knowledge is a dangerous thing." 

It is 1976 and 12 year old Adeline Marie Roosevelt is confused. When her parents aren't forthcoming with information on "the facts of life," Adeline jumps to her own misguided conclusions and causes a small scandal at her school.

The Importance of Sex Education is a short film going into pre-production in the winter of 2015 with production planned for early 2016 and release in the fall of that year.

The script was written by L. Elizabeth Powers and landed in its current revision in late 2013 when it began the screenplay competition circuit.  There, it received numerous accolades, winning four competitions and placing as a top finalist in four others.

On August 22, 2015, the script was announced as the winner of the Louisiana Film Prize sponsored production award at the Hollyshorts festival in Los Angeles. The generous grant will allow the filmmakers to fund almost half their budget putting them well on their way to a successful production funding period.

The film will then be shot in Shreveport, Louisiana as part of the 2016 Louisiana Film Prize competition. Beyond that the filmmakers hope to take the short film on the festival circuit.
