Radium Girls 

directed by Ginny Mohler

produced by Cine Mosaic

 

1925, New Jersey. Teenage sisters, Bessie and Jo, dream of faraway places as they paint glow-in-the-dark watch dials at the American Radium Factory. But when Jo develops a life-threatening disease, Bessie is propelled into a radical coming-of-age struggle as she stands up to the corporation and forces them to admit that they knowingly allowed the women to work with toxic radium. 

I was lucky to reunite with my art department from King Jack to build the feminist world of Radium Girls.

The look of the film moves beyond the traditional dusty period piece to feel contemporary, our color palette often veers into the toxic and surreal. It was an exciting challenge designing this ambitious independent feature.
