Meghan Montminy is a senior at Pelham High School and is on a mission to spread the message about bullying, and vows to do whatever it takes to end it.
While this is a subject that needs to be talked about more, Meghan found an interesting way to address just how damaging bullying can be to another person . . and she did it in 4 minutes and 38 seconds.
In her short film, “Silently Sorry”, Meghan uses a dance to spoken word interpretation with two females depicting the bully and her victim. In an interview with Nazzy and Tara, Meghan explains how the bully, dressed in black and using black paint to show her darkness, breaks down the victim, who is dressed in white, with colorful paint to show her joy and happiness. Throughout the film, as the bully “attacks”, she transfers black paint to her victim, and ultimately leads to the victim’s suicide, showing the possible consequence of one’s actions unto another.
Meghan vows to continue her mission to raise awareness and we look forward to seeing more of her work as she is set to attend Emerson College where she will be studying Media Arts Production.
