ABOUT MOVIE: Acid Test is a coming-of-age rebellion story fueled by Riot Grrrl music, a dysfunctional family, and LSD. Set in 1992 and based on true events that follow a Latina teen's tumble through self-discovery into adulthood.
ABOUT FILMMAKER: Jenny Waldo got her start in the documentary/educational industry of her hometown, Washington, DC. A graduate of USC’s School of Cinematic Arts where she won a directing scholarship, Jenny continued to work on documentaries while also pursuing her passion for scripted filmmaking. Over the years, Jenny produced various scripted and documentary short films as well as writing/directing her own award-winning scripted projects. Producing credits include the indie feature The Preacher’s Daughter which sold to Lifetime and the feature documentary The Cutting Edge: The Magic of Movie Editing. An advocate for upcoming filmmakers, Jenny was Program Coordinator at the non-profit Southwest Alternate Media Project (SWAMP) and now teaches filmmaking at Houston Community College. Her recent short film, Acid Test, screened at festivals all over the world including Austin FilmFestival, BendFilm, Snowdance, and was included in the short film showcases for Austin Film Society and Women in Film and Television International. Jenny is thrilled to premiere her directorial debut feature film, Acid Test, to the world this fall - based on her own tumble through self-discovery as a 1990’s Riot Grrrl. Jenny's next project in development is also based on a true story: Martha's Mustang follows a woman in the male-dominated auto body shop world who fights City Hall to display a brightly painted purple Mustang as part of her shop's sign, recently selected as a Nicholl Fellowship Quarterfinalist!
