Blame- Trailer 2018
Blame is a 2017 American teen drama film written and directed by Quinn Shephard, who also stars alongside Nadia Alexander, Tate Donovan, and Chris Messina. The film is Shephard's feature film directorial debut. It screened at several film festivals, including at the Tribeca Film Festival, where it was nominated for several awards and won the award for Best Actress in a US Narrative Feature (for Alexander's performance). A drama teacher's taboo relationship with an unstable student strikes a nerve in her jealous classmate, sparking a vengeful chain of events within their suburban high school that parallel events in The Crucible. Shephard developed the script for several years. In 2016, after her financier fell through during the first week of shooting, Shephard partially self-financed Blame using money from her college fund. The film was shot in 19 days. Shephard co-produced the film with her mother.
