We hit up the archives for this Friday’s showcased film: a 35mm short that premiered at GradFest back in January 2011. Set in Chicago during the Great Depression, Ragdoll tells the story of a young girl from a poor family named Billie who ventures into a fairytale fantasy world at a local toy store. If Billie looks familiar to you, that’s because you may have seen her on the blog before: she was featured in The Healer, which was in last month’s Superhero Edition of Film Fridays.
“Tara is a phenomenal actress and is easy to work with,” says Production Supervisor Andrew Campbell, who worked on Ragdoll. “She approaches the character with a professionalism and understanding that’s not easily found.”
