ABOUT THE VALLEY
The Valley was written and executive produced by Emerson Morley, principal actor and current high school student in Silicon Valley, California. She wrote the screenplay as a reflection of her experiences with learning disabilities in the high-achieving educational system. She wanted to create a commentary on Silicon Valley’s pressure for perfectionism and success, where one’s self-worth is often defined by GPA’s and SAT scores.
Emerson teamed up with Unni Rav to bring the script to screen through the eyes of students living these challenges, and share her story and message with a wider audience.
