Akela

Alec Toller

When an ambitious but inept scout leader, Akela, attempts to turn her scouts into Superscouts, she reignites an old rivalry with her nemesis Katherine, the Eagle Owl of the girl scouts. Blinded by ego, they lead their young charges into a safari park and onto the trail of a criminal organization. Beautifully shot, with a handmade aesthetic and off-kilter comedy, this is ultimately a film about how we define who we are amidst the roles assigned to us.

Directed by Canadian Comedy Award Nominee, Alec Toller, this film features an original score by Ross Gilmartin (Sherlock Holmes, National Geographic) and British comedy talent and Funny Women finalist, Lorna Shaw (E4, BBC Comedy Feeds).
