IFFBoston ’18 Spotlight: Eighth Grade

IFFBoston 2018 kicks off Wednesday with EIGHTH GRADE, the debut feature from Bo Burnham!

Starring Elsie Fisher, the film tells the story of eighth-grader Kayla Day. Kayla lives her life through her phone in hand, making connections online to make up for what she can’t in real life. Her YouTube videos she makes documents the feelings of isolation, anxiety, and invisibility she and other kids have.

Bo Burnham, best known for his work the past decade on YouTube, wrote and directed EIGHTH GRADE and will be attending the screening at the Somerville Theatre.
