Director: Stella Gutierrez

At 15 years old, Stella is our youngest contest winner to date. Stella made TANGLES at BAYCAT, where she is one of many San Francisco-area youth learning about digital media and developing skills that might otherwise have gone unnoticed. TANGLES is based on Stella's own struggle with obsessive-compulsive disorder, specifically trichotillomania (pulling of the hair) and dermatillomania (picking of the skin).
