S1 Ep6: "Pearl Was Here"

Video duration: 8:33Video has closed captioning.

In your standard arcade claw machine, there are treasures just out of reach. But not for young Pearl. Answering the call of plush animals and seeing an opportunity to escape a troubled family, the scraggly girl slips away from her mother and climbs into the safe and sealed environment of the claw booth. Mommy doesn’t take this too well. Directed by Kate Marks. Made at CalArts.
