The Fits is a psychological portrait of 11-year-old Toni—a tomboy assimilating to a tight-knit dance team in Cincinnati’s West End. Enamored by the power and confidence of this strong community of girls, Toni eagerly absorbs routines, masters drills, and even pierces her own ears to fit in. When a mysterious outbreak of fainting spells plagues the team, Toni’s desire for acceptance is twisted.

The Fits was developed and produced through the 2014/15 Edition of the Venice Biennale Cinema College program, a micro-budget and micro-timeline initiative for first and second time directors from around the world. The film premiered at the 72nd Venice International Film Festival as part of the Venice Biennale Cinema College showcase. In addition, The Fits participated in the inaugural Sundance Institute Feature Film Program Editing Intensive and received additional grant support from the Sundance Institute, Cinereach, and Rooftop Films.

“The movie is a nearly perfect thing, made with such assurance that every shot holds weight and widens your heart.” The Boston Globe

“All ups with no downs, it's a motion picture in the truest sense of the term. I've never seen anything quite like it and I loved every one of its 72 minutes.” Wall Street Journal

“A transfixing meditation on gender and self-discovery, distinguished by the dreamy beauty of its visual and movement-based storytelling.” The Hollywood Reporter
