Description

Growing up in a religious cult, Jackie and Amelia, now in their late thirties, meet up once a year at Amelia’s mother’s grave to reconnect and talk about life. ‘Are we broken?’ they ask themselves, only to decide after a topless escapade through their old sect, that they are only bent. Bent is a short film about those life long friendships that thankfully keep us feeling normal. Actress, singer, songwriter, musician and gymnast Amy Jo Johnson (the Pink Ranger in “Power Rangers,” “Felicity”) directs and acts from her own script.)

Special Guest Amy Jo Johnson will sing and play her original songs at the show.
