Girls will be Girls combines archival footage from East Anglian Film Archive with other resources. The short film is about girls growing up, exploring the expectations and behaviours of young women. The dialogue was taken from interviews with four women who retell their girlhood stories and experiences. The film was created for East Anglian Film Archive 2019 mash-up competition. The film explores film editing techniques and briefly looks at the essay film methods.
