GEORGIA MERTCHING IS DEAD

GEORGIA MERTCHING IS DEAD

written by Catya McMullen
directed by Giovanna Sardelli*

Gretchen, Emma and Whitney are thirty. They've been friends since they were teenagers. They've been sober since they were teenagers. As they set off on a road trip south--with homemade female urination devices, too much pie, ill-advised sexual escapades--to celebrate and mourn a figure from their past, GEORGIA MERTCHING IS DEAD reveals what it's like to face adulthood and death after growing up weird and possibly broken.
