    "Paper Rose" (an anti-bullying film)
    13-year-old filmmaker, Olivia Mazzucato, presents a story of friendship and hope, encouraging teens to stand together in the face of bullying.
    Synopsis: When Danielle transfers to a new school in California, she is welcomed by Emily, the student council president. But Danielle soon realizes that Emily and her "popular" friends are not as accepting as they first seemed. Luckily, Danielle is befriended by Penny, a peculiar student that urges Danielle to be open to the kindness of others at the school, whoever they may be. Danielle follows Penny's advice and discovers that it's not the first time Emily's bullying has caused trouble at the school. But now, united behind Danielle, the students are able to confront Emily to make sure that the past does not repeat itself.
    Bullying in school is a growing problem, but it's not always as obvious as being shoved into a locker, or being beat up. Bullying can be subtle-words that pick someone apart and make them feel alone and different. And when someone is bullied in this way, they might not get the help they need, because no one sees the bruises. But words can hurt too, and if no one takes a stand, that hurt can have deadly consequences.
    This film was made by eighth-grader, Olivia Mazzucato, and was screened during an anti-bullying assembly for the 6th, 7th and 8th grade students at her middle school. The school then hosted a public premiere for the film.

    “Spectrophobia” is the fear of looking in a mirror and seeing a spirit, or some supernatural thing. Penny is a spirit. 😐

    There is a girl in my school named (let’s say mickey) everyone makes fun of her because she is short and “annoying” even I made fun of her. But now I realise she so sweet and kind caring and funny. Yea she can be annoying but it’s ok
    People that are annoying are the ones who care the most.
