We live in an undeniably divisive political climate where distinctions are created based on race, gender identity, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, and political party. However, the bathroom is one of the few spaces where we are all equal, and we all have to interact. And at Notre Dame Day, a prestigious private school in a conservative town, the girl's bathroom is the only place that connects Kahmilah, Zoe, Wynne, and Zafirah on their school's election day. Waiting to find out who will dictate the political future of Notre Dame, the girls' personal struggles boil to the surface. And fortunately, the mirror is there to witness it all.
MIRROR, MIRROR is produced by ARTEMIS, a feminist creative community that produces art and media by underrepresented communities at the University of Southern California.

In August of 2016 she cofounded Artemis, an arts production company for underrepresented groups on campus, with current Co-President, Kathy Stocker. In December, she helped produce Artemis’s first project, an all female cast of William Shakespeare’s The Tempest. She hopes that in producing MIRROR, MIRROR, viewers will be inspired to create more inclusive content and to take initiative in sharing their own individual stories.
Mirror, Mirror is about diversity and inclusion, and we worked hard to cast women with different identities, beliefs, and experiences.
The series also boasts a diverse and experienced team behind the camera. Brandon Le, Fiona Lawson, Simran Jehani, Matt Allen, and Carol Antoinette are all exceptionally talented students from all walks of life, and each of them will shape the series in their own way.
With this series, we want to encourage conversation between women of different beliefs and identities, and create an immersive, controversial, and real portrait of life for young women in today's era.We hope you take this journey with us!
