Over the six weeks of filming, freelance reporter and photographer Adam Robb, who has lived in the ‘hood since 2008, evolved from nosy neighbor to amateur paparazzo. Less interested in the boozy partying and intimate (if asinine) gestures the film cameras were guaranteed to capture, Robb found himself tracking the ways in which “life” was constructed and managed for these two young ladies.
