"Menstruation is just part of the story."

Dorie Barton, writer and director of Girl Flu, chats with us at the 2016 Portland Film Festival. In Dorie's feature film debut, 12-year-old Bird has to become a woman whether she wants to or not when - in the worst week of her life - she gets her first period, is ditched by her impulsive, free spirited mom, and learns that you can never really go back to The Valley.
