A girl is dead. And she’s just the first.

Julia is a pretty typical teen, except that a deadbeat drunk for a father and the murder of her best friend have made her fearless and brave beyond her years. When Julia and her friends secretly visit the abandoned “Tillie” mural at the old Palace Amusements, they seem to unsettle something. Then, as they spend the day at the local carnival, Julia’s friends start to go missing. Julia will have to get to the bottom of the disappearances, or – who knows? – she may be next.

Director’s bio:

Olivia Anton, called Liv, is a Manhattan native and spends summers in Asbury Park. She studied acting at the Lee Strasberg School of Film and Theater for five years.  She landed her first role at the age of 11 as the young version of the title character in “Ava’s Possessions,” a 2015 supernatural horror comedy film written and directed by Jordan Galland.

After her experience on the film, Anton quickly realized that she preferred to be behind the camera and is currently participating in a prestigious two-and-a-half year film fellowship with the Ghetto Film School in New York City.

In the Summer of 2017, she wrote a 60 page screenplay entitled Tillie and directed it in the Fall of 2018. Anton is in the 9th Grade at the Ethical Culture Fieldston School, and a competitive swimmer. She is also the CEO and founder of a 501c3 not-for-profit organization called Birdhaus of Interlaken, NJ which is a well-known community building initiative.
