About Girl Unscripted

Family, love, heartbreak, opportunity, poverty, abuse, drugs…the life of a girl is complicated, and they frequently have no means of expressing themselves, or worse, no one who’ll listen. Relating to these struggles of teenage girls, award-winning filmmaker Tara Veneruso took this to heart and started a filmmaking camp to give girls the opportunity to express themselves and tell their stories.

As a survivor of physical, sexual, and drug abuse, award-winning filmmaker Tara Veneruso saw around her the same tragic circumstances for young women that she had experienced years before. If only someone had steered her onto a better path, earlier. That thought inspired action. Tara created a summer filmmaking camp for girls that would give them an outlet to express themselves, a forum to tell stories, and a chance to understand their worth.

This documentary series spans more than 10 years where we see teenagers/pre-teens transform into adult women and get a fascinating chance to experience life through the eyes of open and brave girls. The accounts Veneruso documents are raw, touching, sad, and hopeful. The trials and triumphs of a person’s life in her own words…a “Girl Unscripted.”

SPACEMOB entered a deal in December 2021, with the entity created by BrightStar Media Group and Capstone Entertainment Group to be the exclusive, worldwide distributor for their original limited series, Girl Unscripted.
