Forest Grove by Maya Churi
Maya Churi

Forest Grove is a haunting web piece about the suburban condition. After being banned from the community pool, young Charlie decides to swim in every pool in bucolic Forest Grove Estate, encountering along the way its assorted inhabitants who seem less alive and more like phantoms in existential crisis. Part epic, part allegory, part damning social critique, filmmaker-artist Maya Churi unravels the promise of planned communities. The gates and fences here do not keep the undesirables outside but instead have corralled them inside this pastoral prison.
