A JUICE BOX AFTERNOON
This is the first in a new series Lily conceived as The Paperback Movie Project. Each short film is an interpretation of a novel and explores the fluid relationship between a reader and the characters she is reading. A JUICE BOX AFTERNOON tells the story of Anne Morrow Lindbergh through her own writing as she comes of age, meets Charles Lindbergh, and experiences flight in more ways than one.
It is a regular Sunday afternoon and Kate, The Neighbor, decides to read a book on her New York City stoop. This regular day is different. Her imagination cracks the book open, and Kate falls into the story she's reading: It is a romantic and violent dreamscape with dance and pop- song mashups that ignites Kate's mundane.

“The genre needs directors who are willing to look beneath the surface and to dream, as Lily Baldwin does in her adroit, wry short, A JUICE BOX AFTERNOON.”
—The NY Times
