Mo and the Vieille
A young girl embarks on a journey to self discovery. Mo is a shy freshman tomboy. It’s October, and the school year has barely started. She doesn’t know anyone at school, and on the 31st, a day when most kids are out trick or treating or at costume parties, Mo is stuck spending the evening with her great aunt ‘Auntie’, a retired, school teaching nun who she’s only seen at Holidays and has never had a real conversation with. As the night progresses, the two drink hot toddies, converse, and learn more about each other. When Auntie falls asleep, Mo trips over a box of artifacts and discovers a long hidden secret. The more she learns about Auntie, the more of her own true nature begins to be revealed. I wanted to capture a snapshot – one of those moments in time when things start to become just a little bit clearer.
