Greener Grass | A Short Film by Jocelyn DeBoer and Dawn Luebbe

In this dark comedy of manners, soccer moms Jill and Lisa seek the approval of their “friends” – at all costs. This surreal world is just on the edge of consciousness; suburbia through the looking glass. Every adult wears painful braces on their straight teeth, couples coordinate meticulously pressed outfits, and coveted family members become pawns in this competition for acceptance. „Greener Grass“ explores one’s willingness to endure present pain in exchange for future validation – or at least a perfect smile.
