Love Stinks (2016) | Narrative Short
An 80s coming-of-age tale about three adolescent girls who acquire a Playgirl magazine,
and are trying to decide if they are ready to look at a naked man for the first time.

“Finding that perfect blend of drama and humour, and featuring well-rounded characters,
Harris captures the awkward period between adolescence and adulthood in an endearing way.”
- Courtney Small, Cinema Axis
