"Bubble": teenager caught up in her parents' foreclosure crisis in 2008 and rescued by her girlfriend


“Bubble”, by Alyssa Lerner, presents a Filipina teenager confronted on the front lawn by the sheriff foreclosing on her family’s house and car, during the 2008 financial crisis, in California.

The officers ponder whether to approach the child first or wait for the parents.

But the teen has another resource, her own girl friend.  She can actually look for a place to stay. This is another family losing everything. 

Filmed in a narrow aspect ratio, just released (17 min).

The teaser is shown, but the full film appears on Youtube, as well as a brief QA.

“Bubble” was also the name of a Steven Soderbergh mystery in 2005, which was offered online and in theaters at the same time.
