Written, Directed, Produced, Edited by Naima Ramos-Chapman
Based on actual events, PIU PIU is a psychological thriller that employs magical realism to examine the threats faced by women as they move through the world in their everyday lives. We follow Jordan, a young woman who chooses to shirk the safety of her relationship only to be confronted with the city’s many dangers in a nightmarish series of events. Times Square, itself an epicenter of distraction and delight, provides the perfect backdrop for a narrative examining the themes of escape, alienation, and morality. By turning the damsel-in-distress trope squarely on its head, PIU PIU reveals a demonstrable truth: that every woman has the ability to be her own savior and redemption can be yours for the taking.
