Disney’s Searchlight Pictures has acquired the short film, “Wiggle Room”, for its Searchlight Shorts program. The short was acquired during the Sundance Festival.
The short is directed by Julia Baylis and Sam Guest. It follows Daisy (Deanna Gibson), a teenage paraplegic who is determined to save her wheelchair ramp from repossession and confronts the shady insurance agent who owes her money.
Deanna Gibson made her acting debut in the short and during the Sundance Pictures she won a special jury award for her performance.
The Searchlight Shorts Program is available on the studios YouTube channel. It’s unclear if these shorts will also be available on Hulu or Disney+.
